The Importance of Wisdom Teeth Removal
Overcrowding is one of the most common complications we see when wisdom teeth start to come in. When adjacent teeth get pushed aside, a beautiful smile can suddenly appear misaligned and require orthodontic treatment, which is costly.
Extraction of wisdom teeth can prevent unnecessary costs, pain, and treatment. If your dental care provider has recommended removal of your wisdom teeth, Battle Creek Family Dentistry can provide painless extraction with or without sedation. Feel free to call us with your referral or to schedule a new patient appointment.
What Causes Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Lack of space is the primary reason wisdom teeth have a difficult time emerging correctly and become impacted. If not removed, an impacted wisdom tooth can result in many issues ranging from infection to gum inflammation and significant damage to nearby teeth. Our staff can prevent all of the adverse scenarios by removing the wisdom teeth before they can cause problems.
Better Oral Health Through Removal
Overcrowded teeth are difficult to brush and floss, leading to tooth decay and gum disease at an early age. Wisdom teeth are often hard-to-reach with both manual toothbrushes as well as electric brushes, so cavities and plaque build-up are often most prominent in molars.
To speak with our staff about options available in removing your wisdom teeth, Battle Creek Family Dentistry specialists recommend calling to book a consultation. It’s not always necessary to remove wisdom teeth; however, it is advisable in most cases.
The primary goal is to keep your teeth their healthiest and brightest- and we can help you achieve that goal by removing emerging wisdom teeth. Taking care of extractions early on will prevent pain and eliminate excessive costs that may arise, once it becomes too late to opt for preventive dentistry and restorative procedures are necessary to maintain oral health.Wisdom Teeth Battle Creek
