Gentle wisdom teeth removal on the Central Coast.
Many teenagers and young adults suffer from pain associated with the eruption of wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth to appear and lack of space in the mouth commonly causes complications. In some cases, this results in the need for wisdom teeth removal.
Wisdom teeth that only partially erupt – or fail to erupt at all – put the patient at increased risk of infection and decay. This is generally caused by bacteria from food that becomes trapped around the impacted wisdom tooth.
How do I know if I require wisdom teeth removal?
While many patients complain of pain associated with the eruption of wisdom teeth, this is not always evidence of impaction.
Regular digital dental x-rays are typically required to reveal the eruption progress of your wisdom teeth and we recommend that teenagers and young adults schedule regular appointments with our dentists so we can track the status of your wisdom teeth.
This will allow our dentists to develop strong knowledge of the condition of your wisdom teeth and will enable us to recommend wisdom teeth removal only when it is definitely required due to the inability of your wisdom teeth to erupt properly.
