Not everyone has problems with wisdom teeth. If your wisdom teeth aren’t causing pain or inflammation, you may never notice they’re there. It’s also possible for wisdom teeth to come through effortlessly, find their niche and not bother existing teeth. Many people, however, will find it necessary to have their wisdom teeth taken out due to pain or other dental problems. If you live in or close to San Jose, California, you can turn to Natalie K. Provenzano DDS, Inc., for safe and effective removal of wisdom teeth.
For the most part, wisdom teeth removal isn’t a complicated matter. When performed by an experienced professional like our Board-Certified in-house Oral Surgeon, Dr. Or Simel, you can expect a successful procedure and outcome. If you’re experiencing persistent wisdom tooth pain, that’s a major indicator that it’s time to have it removed.
Some other signs to watch out for are:
If your wisdom teeth lack space to grow, they may become crooked, push on surrounding teeth, or become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause oral infections, decay, jaw pain, and sinus issues. The pressure of these teeth coming in can also cause cysts to develop under the gumline.
Sometimes wisdom teeth break through the gum and collide with existing teeth due to overcrowding. This can lead to tooth damage. Your wisdom teeth may push existing teeth out of position, causing problems with misalignment. Overcrowding can make it difficult to keep your teeth clean, putting you at risk of getting cavities or gum disease. Wisdom tooth removal can help eliminate such dental problems and restore your oral health.
A dental evaluation by Dr. Natalie Provenzano can determine if you should have your wisdom teeth removed. To schedule a consultation for wisdom tooth removal in San Jose, CA, contact Dr. Provenzano at (408) 226-2542 today.
