In the realm of adult oral anatomy, the average mouth is adorned with 32 teeth, each as unique as a fingerprint. However, tucked away in the back of the mouth, an extra set of molars often lies dormant, causing discomfort or dental complications. These additional molars, known as wisdom teeth, frequently lack the necessary space in the mouth for proper growth. As a result, they can become misaligned, partially erupted, or lead to various complications. At Designing Smiles Dentistry, we boast a team of skilled oral surgeons who specialize in assessing and extracting wisdom teeth.
Fortunately, not everyone needs to undergo wisdom teeth removal if these molars are not causing pain or dental issues. Yet, certain signs and symptoms may signal potential problems, including:
- Pain and discomfort
- Difficulty eating
- Food getting stuck in the gums
- Formation of cysts around the tooth
- Sinus issues (due to tooth roots)
- Teeth misalignment
- Gum inflammation
While the prospect of having teeth extracted may not be the most enjoyable experience, we are dedicated to ensuring your comfort and relaxation throughout the process. Wisdom teeth removal can alleviate gum pain and prevent serious oral health complications stemming from overcrowding.
