Third set of Molars
Here at the Dental Implant Center of Florida, we are proud to offer wisdom teeth extraction for our patients.
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars. Most people start to get their wisdom teeth when they are teenagers, though some teeth don’t come in until you are in your early twenties.
Wisdom teeth have a purpose. They are another set of molars, but more often than not they cause more problems than they are worth. Wisdom teeth can come in misaligned, facing any direction. They can even try to come in horizontally, growing into your other teeth. This can damage your nerves and even your jawbone.
There are also times when your wisdom teeth can become impacted and are not able to come through the gums. They can also come in partially, allowing food to catch in the area and cause plaque to build up. This can lead to bacteria and infection, which will only get worse.
Since wisdom teeth are often harmful, most dentists recommend their removal. The surgery goes much better if you get the teeth removed before any signs of problem. The recovery is easier also. Surgery and recovery are also easier when you are younger.
Wisdom teeth are third set of molars that people get in their late teens or early twenties. These teeth are the last or most posterior teeth in your mouth. By the fact that wisdom teeth are the last ones to come up, a lot of times there is just not enough room for them to erupt completely.
If wisdom teeth are left alone in an impacted condition, they can cause infection/swelling and damage the teeth/gum next to them. Most wisdom teeth removal surgery is done under local anesthetic.
Though surgery can be scary, our skilled dentists and entire staff at our clinic will be glad to help you throughout the process. We will explain the whole procedure step by step until you are comfortable. We are also here for you after you go home. We are just a phone call away.
