Expert Wisdom Teeth Removals for a Healthier Smile
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often make their appearance during late adolescence or early adulthood. While some lucky individuals have these teeth grow in without complications, many others experience issues that make their removal necessary.
Angus Dentistry is a leading provider of wisdom teeth removal and extractions. Under the guidance of Dr. Rebecca Angus, a highly skilled and compassionate dentist, our practice has earned a reputation for excellence in dentistry and oral surgery.
Understanding Wisdom Teeth and Their Common Issues
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to emerge in the back corners of the mouth. Their arrival can vary significantly from person to person, and some individuals may not have wisdom teeth at all. For those who do, there are several common issues that may arise:
- Impaction: Wisdom teeth may not have enough room to grow in properly, leading to impaction. This occurs when the teeth become trapped beneath the gum line or grow in at an angle, pressing against neighboring teeth.
- Crowding: In cases where there is insufficient space in the mouth, wisdom teeth can cause crowding, shifting surrounding teeth, and disrupting a patient’s orthodontic alignment.
- Infection and Decay: Partially erupted wisdom teeth can create small openings in the gum, making it easier for bacteria to enter and cause infection or decay.
- Pain and Discomfort: Wisdom teeth-related issues often lead to pain, discomfort and swelling in the jaw and surrounding areas.
Each patient’s case is unique, and the dental team at Angus Dentistry understands the importance of personalized care. For some patients, proactive removal of the wisdom teeth before they cause problems may be suggested, while others may benefit from a more conservative approach. In all cases, our team will prioritize your well-being and comfort throughout the decision-making process.
