When You Need Your Wisdom Teeth Removed

Wisdom teeth are removed to prevent threats to neighboring teeth, as well as to problems with crowding and discomfort. Simply put, there is often too little space for them. Also known as third molars, they arrive later in life, when secondary (“adult”) teeth are all in place. To prevent them from disrupting your smile, your Cerritos, CA dentist can carefully extract them. A timely procedure to remove them can prevent them from becoming impacted, shifting your alignment, or breaking neighboring molars. Our experience in extractions can lead to positive experiences in the dentist’s chair as well as with your recovery after treatment.

Why Do I Need To Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Your wisdom teeth can create different issues with your smile and health if they are not dealt with in time. Because there is frequently too little room for them when they begin to erupt, they can cause you pain as they press against neighboring teeth. Another concern is that they fail to move into place properly, which can lead to them becoming impacted. This creates new concerns, as they can move in at inappropriate angles or even fail to fully erupt. To protect yourself against complications, keep up with regular dental exams to stay informed about the movement of these molars, and seek help if you start to feel discomfort around the jaw and back of the mouth.

Scheduling The Extraction Of Your Third Molars

When the need for their extraction is identified, we can proceed with care to remove your wisdom teeth before they create any further trouble for your oral health. The process will depend on how far they are in erupting and whether they have become impacted. A procedure to reach the tooth beneath the jawbone structure can ensure the tooth is fully removed without affecting neighboring teeth. In addition to performing this service, we can provide guidance and support to help you enjoy a successful recovery, which prevents potential post-procedure complications.

Why This Is Different From A Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction can restore your well-being when more conservative care is not effective. In these scenarios, we can follow your removal with plans to replace what was lost with a prosthetic restoration. A prosthetic secured with a dental implant can remain firmly and place and offer bite support while also protecting your jawbone against deterioration after the loss of tooth roots.
