If you are starting to experience general discomfort in your jaw, or feel that your teeth are unusually sore or sensitive, the arrival of your wisdom teeth could be responsible. When wisdom teeth begin to erupt, they often cause issues because there is just not enough space in your mouth to accommodate them. This can lead to their becoming impacted, and with your other teeth being pushed in due to their arrival. At our Moreno Valley, CA dentist’s office, we can provide an evaluation to determine if your wisdom teeth are the source of your trouble. If so, we can make plans to extract these teeth and stop further problems from occurring.
The Eruption Of Wisdom Teeth Can Lead To Real Discomfort
Many people do not have adequate space for their wisdom teeth, which is why these teeth are often removed. If they are allowed to erupt, they can become impacted, which means they can arrive at an uncomfortable angle, or even fail to erupt fully. These occurrences can complicate treatment, and make more involved work to restore your smile necessary.
Arranging The Careful Extraction Of These Teeth
After determining that your wisdom teeth are arriving, and that your discomfort is not linked to another issue, like TMJ disorder, we can move forward with plans for a tooth extraction. An oral surgeon at our location can carefully access the tooth and use special tools to remove it without causing problems for you. Once this is done, we can provide instructions on how to let the areas where teeth were removed heal.
What Makes Wisdom Teeth Removal Different From Other Tooth Extractions?
An extraction of your wisdom teeth will not call for prosthetic dental work. When other teeth are taken, it can be necessary to replace them with prosthetic appliances that support your bite and smile. Because wisdom teeth are not needed, and may even be intrusive due to lack of space, this step is not taken after their extraction occurs.
