Wisdom Teeth Extractions in Murrieta, CA
Expect Pain-Free Treatment from Our Experienced Dentist
Wisdom teeth are the third molars that erupt during your late teens or early twenties. They’ve earned the name “wisdom teeth” because of their appearance later in life, when you’re far more knowledgeable or “wise” than you were as a child. Despite the positive connotations of their name, however, wisdom teeth can end up causing pain and other problems for many people. If you or your child are suffering because of third molars, our experienced and compassionate dentist can help you with painless wisdom teeth extractions in Murrieta, CA.
What Kind of Problems Can Wisdom Teeth Cause?
When your wisdom teeth begin to emerge, they can easily grow in at an incorrect angle. This can put pressure on your other teeth. Just in the way that pressure from orthodontic braces can slowly push your teeth into an ideal position, the pressure from wisdom teeth can gradually shift the rest of your teeth out of alignment. The crooked appearance of your teeth will be the least of your problems, though. Misaligned teeth can result in lifelong jaw pain, headaches, and other issues.
Some patients at our Murrieta dental office also turn out to have impacted wisdom teeth. If your wisdom teeth are impacted, this means your jaw bone has insufficient space for them to erupt. They are effectively trapped under your molars or in your jaw bone. If not treated promptly, your impacted wisdom teeth can cause numerous health issues, including permanent damage to your bones and teeth. Untreated impacted wisdom teeth can also result in infection, which can adversely affect your body’s overall health.
What Are the Signs of Wisdom Teeth Problems?
During your regular 6-month preventative dental checkups, Dr. Do will evaluate the state of your wisdom teeth as part of your dental exam. If your wisdom teeth show signs of erupting incorrectly or being impacted, we will advise you to have them extracted as soon as possible. In this way, we can help you avoid the early painful signs of wisdom teeth problems.
If you experience any of the following symptoms at home between your preventative dental appointments, we recommend that you schedule an examination with our 5-star-rated dentist:
- Jaw pain or tenderness
- Red or swollen gums around your teeth
- Persistent bad breath
- Bad taste when you bite down on food
During your exam, your dentist will ascertain whether your symptoms are related to wisdom teeth or another potential dental issue. We will then consult with you about the best way to remove your wisdom teeth. If you feel nervous or anxious about your procedure, we also offer a variety of sedative and non-sedative options to help put you at ease.
