WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL: WE CAN TELL YOU IF YOUR CHILD MIGHT NEED THEIR WISDOM TEETH REMOVED IN THE FUTURE
Wisdom teeth removal is not needed by about 35% of Americans!
But the other 65% of us might face the removal of our wisdom teeth at some future point. These “third molars” can pose a problem and usually appear between ages 16 and 25.
Wisdom teeth removal usually needs to occur for two reasons:
1. Your wisdom teeth are impacted
2. Your wisdom teeth might cause you problems in the future
SEDATION DENTISTRYWisdom teeth removal doesn’t have to be a painful experience. Springville Dentistry offers a pain-free process called sedation dentistry that allows you to relax comfortably while the doctors carefully remove your wisdom teeth!
Our dentists are trained surgeons with years of experience in tooth removal, so trusting your wisdom teeth to Springville Dentistry is wise.
Trusted, reliable, comfortable… and pain-free wisdom teeth removal is what you get at Springville Dentistry.
We carefully consider each patient’s case individually before offering a treatment plan.
You can save time and money in the dental chair with us. Our dentists can also treat your long-term dental needs, not just wisdom teeth.
Ignoring your wisdom
teeth can become
a painful mistake
Common problems from wisdom teeth
When a wisdom tooth grows crooked or sideways, it is said to be “impacted.” This impaction can cause problems to other teeth, usually the second molar.
Why is this a problem? In addition to THE damage to the teeth, there are also several other possible negative side effects:
- Pain due to impact on teeth, gums, or nerves.
- Infection due to partially exposed wisdom teeth.
- Bite problems due to wisdom teeth affecting the shape of your jaw.
Since wisdom teeth usually appear between the ages of 16 and 25, these problems can be avoided by removing them as soon as problems are detected and confirmed.
Do I Need to Consider Wisdom Teeth Removal?
A trip to Springville Dentistry is the best way to determine if you need your wisdom teeth removed.
After we take X-rays of your jaw and teeth, you will have a consultation with one of our Springville dentists, who will be able to tell you if you have a possibility of impaction or any other potential problems that could result from your wisdom teeth.
Corrective action can be taken to avoid damage or negative side effects if you do.
There are benefits to having your wisdom teeth removed with today’s dental advancements, including:
- Comfort with sedation
- Quick, efficient procedure
- Short recovery time
- Often covered by insurance
Every mouth is unique, so it is important to meet with your dentist and ensure you don’t risk developing health problems from your wisdom teeth.
At Springville Dentistry, we specialize in giving you the smile you dreamed was possible and as painless as possible.
