Wisdom Teeth Removal In Chandler, AZ

I suffer from a great degree of dental anxiety yet, because the cleaning by the hygienist is so good, with exacting and thorough attention to detail, I actually come to look forward to the cleaning, and am able to relax without medication. My teeth look and feel so much better.

When Do Wisdom Teeth Come In?
Wisdom teeth usually appear in the late teenage years, although they might appear as late as your late thirties. If you or your child has had braces, you are probably aware of the third set of molars and the need of having your dentist in Chandler monitor their growth. However, if you suspect that new teeth are forming behind your last set of molars, you should schedule an appointment at our Chandler office to have them examined.
What Is The Issue With Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth aren’t harmful. However, new molars usually develop crooked, pressing against existing teeth, or don’t fully erupt due to a lack of room in the jaw. Because of how tough they are to clean, they can cause discomfort, irritation, and even decay in otherwise healthy teeth!
Do Wisdom Teeth Need Extraction?
Only a tiny fraction of people are unaffected by their wisdom teeth. However, they can cause complications if left untreated. The roots of other healthy teeth are pressed against the roots of impacted third molars, which can be pretty painful. Other molars that come in only partially are challenging to clean and let food particles and bacteria accumulate behind the gums. It can lead to damage to the adjacent tooth and gum tissues. It is preferable to remove the teeth ahead of time in certain circumstances.
Issues To Look Out For:
- Less space in the jaws
- Other teeth impact your wisdom teeth.
- Due to the pressure of erupting teeth, there is crowding.
- Inflammation, pain, and infection
- Cysts in the mouth
- Decay caused by lack of cleaning in the affected region
