Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth, or the farthest back molars in your mouth, are the last to grow in, beginning around the age of 18. These teeth often grow in improperly, impacting the gums and teeth structure. These impacted teeth can cause issues such as infection, disease, decay, and even tumors. To best prevent these issues, wisdom teeth are usually extracted at the initial sign of impact.

Infection

Some teeth may experience more serious infections for which restorative approaches will not suffice. In these cases, an extraction may be the best solution.

Routine Extractions

Although many patients fear tooth extractions, modern dentistry has made routine extractions nearly painless solutions. After an extraction is performed, you will need to be careful with the healing socket when brushing. During the first week of healing, your socket may bleed, or you may experience some discomfort. In some cases, your dentist may prescribe pain medicine to help relieve any discomfort.
