Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Cherry Creek Family Dental
Dentist, Wisdom Teeth, Wisdom Teeth Removal
It used to be commonly accepted by dentists that the extraction of wisdom teeth should only occur once they begin to emerge from the gums. Today, this is no longer the case.
There are many risks associated with the emergence of wisdom teeth, and these risks only increase as the patient grows older. Therefore, Cherry Creek Family Dental recommends that our patients undergo the extraction process before they reach thirty-five years of age to reduce the possibility of future infections, pain and swelling, or other physical discomforts or possible medical conditions.
Patients over the age of fifty can witness more difficulties in the extraction process because the wisdom teeth may have begun to fuse to the bone of the jaw over time. Wisdom teeth removal later in life might lead to a decrease in the strength of the oral bite or to the potential reshaping of the jawline. A condition called dysaesthesia can also result. This is a loss of sensation of the jaw and mouth this results from the nerves being damaged that are located adjacent to the wisdom teeth.
Fortunately, we have the knowledge and the expertise to handle these needs for wisdom teeth extractions. We can complete a thorough review of these areas to determine in advance the best possible course for treatment. By taking a simple set of dental x-rays, we can clearly see what is occurring below the gum line and into the bone regions, allowing us to create the perfect treatment solution.
