Keep Your Smile Intact By Removing Your Wisdom Teeth
If you are between the ages of 17 and 25, you are going to show signs of your wisdom teeth coming in. When you do, it’s important you come visit us for an exam. You may need extraction of these third molars. Leaving them in place may increase your risk for crowding nearby teeth. It is often tough to keep these teeth clean because of their position in your mouth. This difficulty with oral hygiene puts you at greater risk for dental decay and gum disease.
Here are a few signs your wisdom teeth are erupting:
- Bleeding or tender gums
- Swollen gums or jaw
- Ache or pain in your jaw
- Difficulties opening your mouth wide
- A bad taste in your mouth
If you recognize any of these signs, come in for an appointment. Dr. Dudzik can examine you to determine if the teeth need to be removed and whether he can perform the extraction.
If he moves forward with this dental surgery, he’ll focus on keeping you comfortable the whole way through. In addition to numbing your mouth with an anesthetic, he can offer sedation through a small pill. You’ll take it before your appointment, so you arrive anxiety-free. You’ll need to arrange for a ride home if you choose this sedation option.
Call 616-202-5959 for an appointment if you need wisdom teeth removal in Dorr. We’re open as early as 7 a.m. several days a week.
