At Your Time Dental Urgent Care, we do wisdom teeth extractions.
Let’s review these unpredictable (and somewhat mysterious) teeth.
Wisdom teeth are the last of the molars to erupt from the gum. They usually erupt in the late teens and early twenties. Not all men and women develop these teeth. Those that do can have one, two, three, or four.
Some Gibsonton dental patients never experience any troubles with these extra molars. But sometimes wisdom teeth can lead to dental complications.
If the wisdom teeth do not have the room to develop and come in normally, they are referred to as impacted wisdom teeth.
An impacted tooth may never emerge from the bone and gum, emerge only partially, or come in sideways.
Impacted teeth can damage the adjacent molar, cause infection, or trigger gum disease. Sometimes these conditions cause no noticeable symptoms for a period of time. To prevent these complications, Drs. Kernagis may recommend extraction.
Wisdom teeth symptoms include pain when opening the mouth, gum swelling, bad breath, and pain when chewing. These indicators can be continual or intermittent.
To learn more about wisdom teeth extraction, call us to schedule an exam. We can accommodate your schedule.
