Having wisdom teeth removed can be a nerve-racking procedure, but it’s one that most of us will likely have to undergo. Whether your wisdom teeth are causing you pain or are simply impinging on the health of your bite, you’ll want to find a skilled dentist like the expert team at Tatum Point Dentistry, who can ease your nerves and help you get through the procedure with minimal pain and maximum results.
It would be a good idea to get your wisdom teeth removed as soon as they start coming in around the age of 17. Removing them early will help avoid damaging the surrounding teeth. Wisdom teeth will grow in at any angle and could end up causing significant damage. Our mouths only have room for so many teeth so an extra molar could end up impacting your smile to try and fit this intrusion. If your wisdom tooth comes in at an angle, it can press up against the surrounding tooth, causing misalignment.
How many wisdom teeth grow varies solely on each individual. Some will get four, some two, and others won’t get any at all. When your wisdom teeth first start showing, you may start to feel some pressure or pain from the intrusion. Experiencing this sort of pain is normal and should be expected at first. Getting your wisdom teeth removed as soon as you can will allow for an easier extraction. The longer you wait to get them out, the more the roots will become ingrained in your gums and in turn the extraction process will be more difficult.
The entire wisdom tooth removal surgery shouldn’t take longer than an hour. We will make sure to make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible during your procedure and offer a variety of pain-free sedation methods to help. The surgery itself is rather simple for you but you will need to arrange a ride home due to the sedative and make sure to plan on being away from work or school for a few days after the procedure. You may feel some pain after the surgery but you will be back to your regular self in no time!
