Wisdom teeth are called third molars and come in when we are in our late teen years through our mid-20s. Unfortunately, most often, there is no room for them to grow correctly, causing painful dental health concerns.
Wisdom teeth that are badly aligned can damage surrounding teeth, as well as your jawbone and nerves. In some cases, they can also become impacted, where they get trapped in your jawbone and can’t come through the gum line. This means in a lot of patients, wisdom teeth have to be pulled out.
Wisdom teeth that are poorly aligned may damage surrounding teeth, as well as the jawbone and nerves. In some cases, they can also become impacted, where they get trapped in the bone and can’t erupt through the gum line. For these patients, they must have their wisdom teeth surgically extracted.
We welcome a call from you or a visit here at Route 14 Dentistry if you are having problems with your wisdom teeth. Let us help you today!
When you visit our Crystal Lake office, you can discuss with Dr. Moon about how your wisdom teeth are positioned. Our team will take digital X-rays to assess their alignment and position in your jaw. If you experience pain, infections, or other complications, he will recommend extraction. Ignored, your condition could worsen until more invasive procedures are needed.
Once our dentist that determines an extraction is needed, we will perform or schedule the procedure as soon as possible. Our dentist will numb your mouth with local anesthesia. We also offer oral sedation to make you as relaxed and comfortable as possible.
When your mouth is numb, our dentist will remove the tooth. If the tooth is impacted, we may have to cut into the gum tissue or jawbone to extract it. In this case, we will suture the area shut to promote healing.
