Under most circumstances, our goal during restorative dental work is to resolve a problem while preserving your full smile. However, when it comes to wisdom teeth, extraction is typically recommended. Providing this service helps by removing teeth you do not have space to keep. If they are not removed in time, these teeth, also known as third molars, can become impacted, crowd neighboring teeth, and generally cause pain and sensitivity issues. Our Riverside, CA dental practice is ready to safely extract these teeth so that they do not create any unwelcome oral health complications.
Your Wisdom Teeth Can Cause Serious Problems For Your Oral Health
Wisdom teeth removal prevents several possible problems. Because we typically lack space for these molars, their arrival can be painful. They can press against neighboring teeth, and that can lead to damage to your enamel as well as awkward crowding. This can lead to shifting, but it can also lead to wisdom teeth becoming impacted, which means they do not move into place properly. To extract them before they have fully erupted, we can perform minor oral surgery to provide a timely removal.
Safely Extracting Your Wisdom Teeth Through Oral Surgery
By performing oral surgery, we can take out wisdom teeth safely. If we see signs that call for their removal during a dental exam, or if you experience symptoms of their arrival, we can make plans to safely have them out. Removing them through oral surgery before they can fully erupt prevents complications, and avoids a situations where they cause permanent problems for other teeth.
Other Situations That Can Call For Tooth Extraction
While our goal is always to treat teeth before they need to be extracted, it can be necessary to perform this service in some cases. A severe cavity, or significant damage, can cause such serious problems that a restoration cannot be placed. To preserve your smile after an extraction, we can make plans to provide a permanent prosthetic.
