Wise Up About Wisdom Teeth Extraction
What is the point of wisdom teeth extraction, anyway? Dr. Faltine provides wisdom teeth extraction to his patients because it is highly beneficial to the health in the long run. By keeping your wisdom teeth, you put your health at risk. Some of the risks involved with keeping your wisdom teeth include:
Impacted Teeth | Many jaws are not large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth. One of the problems that can occur because of this is that wisdom teeth can become impacted, or unable to erupt through the gums. This can cause infection, damage to the teeth, or even a cyst.
Partial Eruption | If a wisdom tooth breaks only partway through the gums, problems can arise. The gum tends to grow over the partially erupted tooth, and germs and food particles can easily become trapped under this flap of gum. The germs and food can lead to infection, which means swollen, tender, and painful gums.
Ruined Smile | Because there isn’t usually enough space for wisdom teeth, they can come in the wrong way entirely–the top of the tooth may face forward, backward, or to the side. Even if the tooth comes in correctly, it could push the rest of your teeth, causing your smile to look crowded and crooked.
Dr. Faltine extracts wisdom teeth because wisdom teeth extraction promotes a healthy and beautiful smile. Wisdom teeth extraction prevents crowding, impacted teeth, infection, gum disease, and tooth decay.
Dr. Faltine and his staff do all they can to make the wisdom teeth extraction process comfortable and quick. He provides a local anesthetic and other sedation dentistry methods for the procedure.
