Relief from the Pain of Wisdom Teeth
We can prevent changes to your smile by removing wisdom teeth
Wisdom teeth are often referred to as third molars. They tend to emerge later in life, erupting in the late teens to early twenties. By this time, your teeth may have been straightened by orthodontics and there isn’t room in your mouth to accommodate them. DICMI offers removal of wisdom teeth in Troy, MI, to protect your oral health.
Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?
For some people, wisdom teeth grow in comfortably, but for others it is a painful experience. There are many reasons for wisdom teeth removal, including:
- They cause your teeth to crowd because there is not enough space in your mouth
- The teeth are impacted or stuck in the jaw and are not erupting properly
- The teeth and periodontal tissue around the teeth may be harder to clean, increasing exposure to disease and decay
- The teeth are only partially exposed, causing pain and inflammation
What Can I Expect from having my Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Individual wisdom teeth are often removed surgically. Depending upon the condition of your wisdom teeth and how many will be removed, DICMI may recommend sedation dentistry to make sure that you rest comfortably through the procedure without any discomfort. Removal can require a temporary soft diet and a bit of downtime after the procedure.
PROTECTING YOUR TEETH AND GUMS WITH WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL
Crowded, impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth can threaten your oral health. Chronic pain and inflammation are small issues when compared with the possibility that emerging wisdom teeth can move and shift your already present teeth. In addition, partially exposed teeth can make it impossible to keep your gum tissue free from infection.
