Coast Dental San Ramon
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
in San Ramon, California
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars to develop in the far upper and lower corners of the mouth. Coast Dental wants you to be aware that any problematic symptoms in or around the areas of your wisdom teeth should be treated immediately because they can create problems that threaten your dental health.
Sometimes the jaw is not large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth. In these cases, the wisdom teeth can become infected or impacted because they are either unable to come into the mouth and jaw properly, or they are not aligned with the other teeth when they do come in. Wisdom teeth can grow sideways, remain trapped beneath the gum line or only partially emerge from the gums. This can cause immediate problems such as an improper bite, misalignment of teeth or problems chewing food. In the long term, problems with wisdom teeth can impact overall dental health, a situation that should always be avoided.
Symptoms of impacted or infected wisdom teeth include extreme discomfort, inflammation of the gums and infections. If you have any of these symptoms, please call us in San Ramon about removal of your wisdom teeth.
You should understand that resolving problems with your wisdom teeth often involves extracting them.
