Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom Teeth Removal Berwyn Dental Connection

About 10 million wisdom teeth are removed each year from 5 million people. Oral surgery to remove wisdom teeth is a standard procedure that is practiced every day. After visiting our Berwyn dentist, Dr. Lares may recommend to get your wisdom teeth removed. However, you may wonder why you need them removed even though they don’t cause pain.

Just because your wisdom teeth are not a source of pain doesn’t mean that there is nothing wrong. Most of the time, wisdom teeth need to be removed because they don’t have room to grow properly and may cause problems. Other reasons include:

  • Damage to other teeth: Impacted wisdom teeth can shift other teeth as they continue to grow. This can undo the effects of braces, crowns, bridges and partial dentures. It can also cause mouth pain and bite problems.
  • Sinus issues: Problems with wisdom teeth can lead to sinus pain, pressure and congestion.
  • Jaw damage: Impacted wisdom teeth may develop cysts or tumors. If they aren’t treated, they can hollow out your jaw and cause damage to nerves.
  • Inflamed gums: Because there is limited space for wisdom teeth to erupt, infection and inflammation may be common. Gum disease and inflammation can lead to receding gum tissues, deterioration of the jawbone and tooth loss.
  • Cavities: Your wisdom teeth are more susceptible to cavities since it is more difficult to clean them. Bacteria can grow, which causes cavities to form.

Before deciding on getting your wisdom teeth removed, our dentist will look at the shape of your mouth and the position of your teeth. In addition, Dr. Lares will take x-rays to determine the growth pattern of your wisdom teeth.

There is no age limit to getting your wisdom teeth removed but as you get older, surgery and recovery can be more difficult. In most instances, you can wait several months to see if anything changes in your wisdom teeth before making a final decision. However, if you experience pain or swelling near the back of your teeth, contact our dentist in Berwyn for a consultation.

Berwyn Dental Connection has wonderful dentists and staff. Everyone is friendly and takes time to answer questions. They are also good with children. My two children are nervous about visiting the dentist but the hygienist and dentist always put them at ease. They let them bring their own toothpaste too!

I had nothing but great experiences and good things to say until today. I received a phone call from a law office to collect a debt. I work long hours and every time I call the office is about to close and nobody picks up. I have left a voicemail asking for a call back to pay my debt and instead received a text message “asking how can we help”. Mind you the attorney that called I thought maybe it was an attorney I was waiting for a call back from and they give the wrong name. I stupidly gave out my name and received a call back a minute later with a voicemail saying they’re attempting to collect a debt. What’s hilarious to me about the whole thing is that I called multiple times after receiving this X-ray service asking about the results because nobody ever called me back with them like I was told would happen when I left. The taller Latina with long black hair who typically takes payments after a visit took my X-rays…..seemed like it was her first time and assured me the dentist would call me. Never did-But you all sure care more about the debt. I’m being charged for something I’ve received no proof or word of with results. I will not be back. The dentist here are amazing but the customer service… although very hospitable seems very money hungry rather than caring.

I had a wonderful experience at this dentist. Everyone is so friendly and supportive. Veronica was so nice on the phone and explained everything to me. Dr Peralta-Sugano made me feel very comfortable as I needed a tooth extracted. I felt nothing!! The dental assistant was also so gentle and friendly. I have found my new dentist!
