Wisdom Teeth Removal
At Seneca Smiles, we provide wisdom teeth extractions to protect your oral health. By removing wisdom teeth promptly after they grow in, we can prevent nerve damage, jawbone damage, and infections.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions for Your Oral Health
Although wisdom teeth are another set of molars, they tend to do more harm than good. When they grow in during the teenage years or early twenties, they may come in misaligned. In some cases, wisdom teeth grow in horizontally, interfering with the adjacent teeth. This may damage the nerves and jawbone if left untreated.
Wisdom teeth may also become impacted, meaning that they don’t fully erupt through the gums, or grow in partially. This can cause food to accumulate in the area, leading to the buildup of plaque and bacteria. Given that the wisdom teeth are far back in the mouth, they’re difficult to brush, creating the risk of worsening infection.
Our experienced team can extract your wisdom teeth to prevent these complications and preserve your oral health.
When to Have Your Wisdom Teeth Removed
We typically recommend that patients have their wisdom teeth removed promptly after they grow in, even before signs of a problem arise. Wisdom teeth are often harmful, and the surgery tends to be the most successful before issues occur. The surgery and recovery process are also often the most straightforward when patients are younger.
