Over the years, wisdom teeth have become a constant worry for young adults. These teeth, also known as the third molars, are the last teeth to break through and develop in the mouth. Most patients will experience their wisdom teeth breaking the surface between the ages of 17 and 25. However, wisdom teeth often develop a myriad of problems. Because often there is not enough room and they can become impacted or fail to break through the gums. Impaction can be painful, and will require wisdom teeth extraction.
Rush Creek Dentistry of Arlington is proud to offer extraction of wisdom teeth, also called third molars. Instead of referring patients out to an oral surgeon, our team is experienced and qualified in extractions. We can help patients who are in pain and discomfort due to impacted wisdom teeth.
Impaction is the main reason patients have their wisdom teeth extracted. Others may have them removed due to orthodontic work, or for their oral health. When these teeth do erupt through the gums, they can be extremely difficult for patients to clean because they are so far back in the mouth. This can increase one's risk for the development of periodontal disease and tooth decay. Extracting these teeth can improve one's dental health and reduce the risk of problems.
The dentists at Rush Creek Dentistry can help patients in determining when wisdom teeth extraction is necessary. An examination and x-rays may be completed during a consultation appointment to find out if the wisdom teeth are a concern. Patients can speak with their dentist about the problems they have been experiencing, and make an educated decision regarding their third molars.
