Comfortable wisdom tooth extraction in Las Vegas
Have you had a dental professional take a look at your wisdom teeth? Our dentists can evaluate wisdom teeth and predict if they may cause you problems in the future. Studies show that early evaluation and treatment result in greater comfort and safety.
Many patients do not have enough space in the mouth for their molars to fully arrive, and this can cause several different problems. Often, wisdom teeth will emerge in a sideways or crooked fashion, which can damage healthy teeth.
Why do I need to have my wisdom teeth removed?
Wisdom teeth can cause a wide variety of health problems if they are not removed. That's why we use local anesthesia and dental sedation at our office, to guarantee patient comfort throughout the wisdom teeth removal process. Schedule your wisdom teeth extraction consultation to avoid the following issues:
- Infection: The most common problem caused by impacted wisdom teeth is gum infection. Gums around your impacted wisdom teeth can become irritated, and will result in pain, swelling and reduced ability to chew.
- Cysts: Patients who do not undergo wisdom teeth extraction may experience cyst formation. These fluid-filled sacs develop near impacted wisdom teeth, and can slowly destroy surrounding teeth and bone.
- Crowding: Impacted wisdom teeth can also contribute to crowding. Crowding can affect the aesthetic of a smile, and can also cause long-term damage in teeth and jaws.
- Decay & Disease: Impacted wisdom teeth lead to greater instances of gum disease, tooth decay and bone loss in adjacent teeth. The best way to reduce these risks is with a simple wisdom tooth extraction.
