Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth do not always cause issues, but when they do, they can become incredibly problematic. When wisdom teeth begin to cause pain or force adjacent teeth out of alignment, removal is the best option to protect your teeth and smile. You do not need your wisdom teeth and can’t see them when you smile. Removal will only ensure that the frame of your smile maintains a natural appearance.
Vida Dental can perform wisdom teeth removal at our Central Austin office. We will ensure that you do not feel any pain during the removal of wisdom teeth by providing you with the best general dental care. Our team understands that having wisdom teeth removed may cause our patients to feel anxious. We will do everything we can to help you relax before, during and after your wisdom teeth are removed.
The Negative Effects of Wisdom Teeth
Impacted wisdom teeth can cause a number of serious dental issues. Gum disease is a common result of the tissues around the wisdom teeth becoming infected. Due to the difficulty in maintaining oral hygiene around wisdom teeth, pericoronitis, inflammation of the soft tissues surrounding the crown of a partially erupted tooth, can occur. When pericoronitis develops you will need treatment, which will likely include the removal of the affected wisdom tooth.
Crowding of the teeth can also occur when wisdom teeth force other teeth to drift. To prevent teeth from crowding it is advisable to have the wisdom teeth removed. The difficulty in removing wisdom teeth will depend on how much of the tooth has emerged and the position relative to the jaw. We will assess your needs with a comprehensive exam before settling on treatment.
When you begin to experience pain from wisdom teeth, contact Vida Dental to arrange a comprehensive exam with a specialist dentist. We will provide an honest assessment of your needs and provide the best course of treatment for you.
