Coast Dental Brandon Town Center
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
in Brandon, Florida

Most people have four wisdom teeth, which is just another way to refer to your third molars. In some people, it can be painful when these teeth emerge. In most cases, our dentist can remove wisdom teeth in the comfort of our dental office on West Brandon Boulevard. The dentist may refer patients to a Coast Dental oral surgeon for more complicated wisdom teeth extractions.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are typically the last set of molars to make their appearance in the mouth. They often start to break through the gum line in people between the ages of 17 and 25. If there is room in the mouth and the teeth are coming in properly positioned, then there is rarely a need to remove the wisdom teeth.

Why Wisdom Teeth May Need to be Removed

  Impacted wisdom tooth. Your Brandon dentist may recommend removing your wisdom teeth if your jaw is not large enough to accommodate this third set of molars.  If your dentist tells you that you have impacted wisdom teeth, it means the teeth are partially or completely trapped beneath the gum line. The wisdom teeth may be pressing against other teeth, which can cause those teeth to shift out of alignment.  Impacted wisdom teeth can be painful and can create problems with speaking and eating. They can also lead to periodontal (gum) disease. Extracting the wisdom teeth is often the best course of action.

Most people choose to have their wisdom teeth removed between the ages of 15 and 25 when their tooth roots are not fully developed and their jaw bone is not as dense. Whether you need to have your wisdom teeth removed to alleviate an existing condition or to prevent a future problem, our dentist will be happy to talk to you about your specific situation.

If you’re experiencing discomfort, call Coast Dental Brandon Town Center today to schedule a consultation. X-rays can show whether your wisdom teeth are causing the pain, and your dentist can advise you on whether you need wisdom teeth extractions at our Brandon office or with an oral surgeon at one of our nearby dental offices.  We look forward to helping you.
