Worsening problems with pain near your jaw, or a feeling of pressure against your molars, can be a warning that your wisdom teeth are starting to erupt. Unfortunately, many of us are not able to accommodate these teeth, also known as third molars, simply because we lack space in our mouths for them. If they are not extracted in time, they can shift and erupt improperly, which can cause considerable discomfort and put your oral health at risk. Your Riverside, CA dentist’s office is prepared to help if you have trouble with your wisdom teeth. Remember that when you regularly attend dental exams, complications from the eruption of third molars can be avoided, as we can assess when they should be removed.

Why Are Wisdom Teeth Frequently Extracted?

People tend to have too little space in their mouths to provide room for wisdom teeth. Because of this, their arrival can actually create problems for your oral health. When not removed in time, they can put pressure on neighboring molars and cause your teeth to shift. They can also become impacted, which means they shift and move in at inappropriate angles. This can cause more issues for your well-being and also make their removal more difficult. Because their arrival can create so much trouble, we will look out for their movement at regular dental exams and let you know when they need to be dealt with.

Planning Treatment To Carefully Remove Your Wisdom Teeth

We can carefully remove wisdom teeth before they have erupted and made their way out of your gum line. By doing this, we can take care of them before they can become impacted or start to make trouble for your molars. The area where they need to be removed will be treated with local anesthetic to prevent discomfort. Once you are ready, we can carefully access your third molars, then provide careful suturing to tend to your periodontal tissues. We can provide guidance on how to protect the affected areas while you heal, and may recommend pain relievers or antibiotics. At a follow-up visit, we will confirm that you are healing as you should, and that there are no complications.
