Do I Need a Wisdom Tooth Extraction?
The wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars to emerge, typically arriving between the late teens and early twenties. Unfortunately, wisdom teeth don’t always have enough jaw space to erupt properly. In fact, they are known for causing more harm than good. When the wisdom teeth attempt to grow in sideways or only partially erupt above the gumline, serious complications can occur. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to painful jaw cysts, infection and other issues. To avoid this, wisdom teeth removal is suggested.
Legacy Dental delivers the highest standard of care when it comes to wisdom teeth removal. We make it a priority to follow the progress of your wisdom teeth beginning in adolescence. Once a potential problem is noted, we recommend removing the wisdom teeth as a proactive measure towards your oral health. The wisdom teeth do not serve enough functional benefit to outweigh the risk of complications. Our dentists offer wisdom teeth extraction for both teens and adults. We also offer sedation dentistry and use advanced technology to minimize discomfort and accelerate recovery.
Do I Need a Tooth Extraction?
At Legacy Dental, we do everything we can to save your natural teeth. Modern dentistry offers a variety of treatments to save teeth that are severely infected, diseased or damaged. However, it is possible to have a tooth that is past the point of restoration. In such cases, a tooth extraction may be more beneficial to both your dental health and overall health.
If you need tooth removal, you can depend on our Legacy Dental team to provide a stress-free experience. We offer sedation dentistry and other relaxing amenities to keep you calm and at ease. In addition, we will give you detailed information about what to expect during and after your extraction procedure. Our dentists use dedicated techniques to conserve as much healthy tissues and bone as possible during the extraction. We can also discuss your options for tooth replacement if appropriate.
