Preserve Your Oral Health With Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically develop in late adolescence or young adulthood and are located at the back of the mouth. While some people have enough room in their jaws to accommodate their wisdom teeth and don’t experience any problems, others may need to remove them. At First-in-Smiles Dentistry in Matthews, we are pleased to offer wisdom teeth removal for our patients’ oral health.
What are the benefits of wisdom teeth removal?
When wisdom teeth can’t fully erupt due to limited jaw space, they can become impacted or trapped in the gums, leading to further complications. This may cause significant pain or discomfort. Sometimes, wisdom teeth grow sideways and push on the roots of your back molars, or they can cause overcrowding of the other teeth. Removing them reduces the likelihood of such issues and lowers the risk of infection, improving the overall health of your mouth.
How long does it take to recover from wisdom teeth removal?
A patient generally takes one to two weeks to fully recover from wisdom teeth extraction. During this time, you must follow our post-operative instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and avoid potential complications. Pain relievers and antibiotics may be prescribed if necessary.
Is wisdom teeth removal safe?
Yes, wisdom teeth removal is a safe and relatively straightforward procedure. However, it’s important to consider your dental history before making any decisions. We recommend that you consult with our experienced dentist at First-in-Smiles Dentistry to discuss whether or not this is the right option for you.
Who should consider wisdom teeth removal?
Patients with crowded or impacted teeth, having difficulty cleaning their back molars properly, or who experience pain associated with emerging wisdom teeth may benefit from having them removed.
