Wisdom Teeth Removal

Most people have four wisdom teeth, and for many people, these never cause a problem. But for other people, it can be painful when these teeth emerge. In most cases, our dentist can remove wisdom teeth in the comfort of our Lake City office. The dentist may refer patients to a Coast Dental oral surgeon for more complicated wisdom teeth extractions.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

“Wisdom teeth” is just another name for your third set of molars. They are typically the last teeth 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

Your Lake City 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. Extracting the wisdom teeth is often the best course of action.

If you’re experiencing discomfort, call Coast Dental Lake City today at (386) 752-7373 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 Lake City office or with an oral surgeon at one of our nearby dental offices.
