Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom Teeth Removal In 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:
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.
