For some people, wisdom teeth grow in comfortably, but for others it is a painful experience. There are many reasons for wisdom teeth removal, including:
Individual wisdom teeth are often removed surgically. Depending upon the condition of your wisdom teeth and how many will be removed, Dr. D’Orazio may recommend sedation dentistry to make sure that you rest comfortably through the procedure without any discomfort. Wisdom teeth removal can require a temporary soft diet and a bit of downtime after the procedure.
Crowded, impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth can threaten your oral health. Chronic pain and inflammation are small issues when compared with the possibility that emerging wisdom teeth can move and shift your already present teeth. In addition, partially exposed teeth can make it impossible to keep your gum tissue free from infection.
