Winter Break: Why It’s Time To Schedule Your Kid’s Wisdom Teeth Removal

Are you well aware that it’s high time you call our Cerritos, CA practice to set up your child’s wisdom teeth removal but life keeps getting in the way? You keep telling yourself that you’ll call and schedule it but trying to figure out the right time just never seems to pan out. To this, we say: Consider setting up the extractions over winter break, when everyone has the time to rest, relax, and recover!

We’ve Suggested Removal Already

If we have already suggested wisdom teeth removal for your child, then unless we have told you that you have lots and lots of time to schedule the procedure, getting it done sooner than later is usually the best option. Remember, urgency will usually become part of the picture when the reason we suggest removal is because the teeth are positioned in a way that is dangerous for your child’s oral health (impaction, awkward growth angle, etc.). Since winter break is the next big chunk of time off from school, this is often a preferred time to schedule the treatment. Call our team soon!

It’s One Of The Only Times That Works For You

As mentioned, the next very big vacation for your kids (and possibly for you, too) is going to be winter break. We encourage our patients to remember that wisdom teeth removal is a bit more involved than other treatments. Since it’s oral surgery, your child will need to take the day off and likely a day or more after that for recovery. Don’t miss out on winter break as a wonderful time to get this done without any stress if extractions are one of your top priorities at the moment.

Procrastinating Can Become Dangerous

Our team would like for you to remember that when we determine your child requires wisdom teeth removal, procrastinating can lead to dangerous results. In some instances, issues like impaction or poor growth can lead to a variety of complications. These could include infection, cyst formation, pain, injury to nearby teeth, problems with alignment, and the list continues! Why not see us ASAP to keep your child’s smile safe?
