Protect Your Smile With Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge during the late teens or early twenties. Due to evolutionary changes in human diets, wisdom teeth often lack sufficient space to grow properly, causing various problems. Wisdom teeth removal is a common dental procedure performed at North Tampa Family Dental in Tampa to extract one or more wisdom teeth.
What is involved in wisdom teeth removal?
Our dentist will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays, to evaluate the position and condition of the wisdom teeth. Local anesthesia will be administered to ensure a more comfortable procedure, and using specialized tools, our dentist will carefully perform the removal procedure.
What are the benefits of wisdom teeth removal?
Having your wisdom teeth removed offers several benefits, including:
- Prevents overcrowding: Wisdom teeth often lack sufficient space to emerge properly, leading to overcrowding, misalignment, and potential damage to adjacent teeth.
- Avoids impaction: Wisdom teeth can remain trapped below the gum line. This can lead to pain, infection, and damage to surrounding teeth or bone.
- Reduces risk of infection: Partially erupted wisdom teeth create a breeding ground for bacteria, increasing the risk of oral infections, gum disease, and tooth decay.
- Enhances oral hygiene: Wisdom teeth can be challenging to clean due to their location. Removing them makes brushing and flossing easier, allowing for better oral hygiene, and reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
