Your third molars, or “wisdom teeth,” are the last teeth to erupt. By the time these teeth emerge from the gum line, there is almost never enough space in the mouth to accommodate them. This causes the wisdom teeth to become impacted (trapped and unable to break through to gums and jawbone) and leads to a number of problems, including:
- Disrupting your tooth alignment
- Damage to nearby teeth
- Increased risk of infection and tooth decay
- Inflammation in the gums and bone tissues
- Formation of cysts
- Damage to your jawbone
Dr. Mirci and Dr. Dan perform wisdom teeth removal procedures to avoid these problems and help you keep your smile healthy. When you come to Mirci Dental, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and supporting oral structures. This exam may include taking X-rays to determine the exact position of your wisdom teeth. We will then be able to determine if your wisdom teeth need to be removed.
When you receive wisdom teeth removal, our dentists will perform your procedure as gently as possible. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure, and we will provide sedation options and other comfort amenities to help you feel at ease and manage any discomfort. We will also follow up personally to make sure that you are recovering properly.
