Wisdom tooth removal becomes necessary for many people because their mouths are simply not big enough to accommodate these third molars. Timely wisdom tooth removal can help you avoid oral health problems, like cavities and gum disease, while preserving your dental aesthetics. Keep reading to learn more from our Orland Park wisdom tooth dentists…
Depending on the size of your mouth and the orientation of your wisdom teeth, you may end up with third molars that:
- Are impacted in bone tissue
- Put pressure on adjacent teeth, causing your smile to shift
- Come in at uncomfortable or unhealthy angles
- Only partially break through the gum tissue, leaving you at risk of developing oral infections
When our team is able to remove your wisdom teeth before they emerge, we can help you minimize your risk of secondary infection and discomfort.
Our Orland Park wisdom teeth dentists use digital X-rays to see exactly how your wisdom teeth are positioned. The details that we are able to see on digital X-rays allow us to thoroughly pre-plan your treatment, which improves treatment outcomes. Plus, digital imaging emits significantly less radiation that conventional X-rays.
We truly believe that wisdom tooth extraction does not have to be a lengthy, stressful experience. For your comfort and convenience our office is outfitted with massage chairs, comfy blankets, and soothing amenities.
If you are an adult and you have not yet had your wisdom teeth removed, you may want to contact your dental team for a consultation. A lucky few people do not have wisdom teeth at all, or have small wisdom teeth that never emerge. However, the rest of us will benefit from wisdom tooth removal.
