Having pain at the back of the mouth? Are the gums inflamed and irritated? It may be time to get those wisdom teeth removed. Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that come in much later after the rest of the teeth are settled into place. Getting these removed require specialized care to ensure safe and gentle removal.
That is why an oral surgeon is the best person to remove wisdom teeth in Flower Mound and Denton, TX. Here is what you need to know about wisdom tooth removal!
The Complexities Wisdom Teeth Cause
In the past, people’s mouths could accommodate these extra sets of molars easily. Over time, this space has shrunk, leaving no space for the teeth to come out in the mouth. This causes them to come in at an angle which can cause the other teeth to shift, decay, or even fall out. Because of how painful this process is, wisdom teeth typically inflame the area in the mouth they are impacting as well.
Other difficulties wisdom teeth can cause are:
- Inability to speak normally
- Difficulty chewing foods
- Pain in the jaw
- Gum disease
- Tinnitus or ringing of the ears
The Process For Removing Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom tooth removal is one of the more common procedures performed by an oral surgeon. With expert schooling to understand the structures of the mouth and surrounding area, and expert training in hospital-based residency programs, oral surgeons in Flower Mound and Denton, TX understand how to remove wisdom teeth. This is not meant to disparage the work of other dentists but to point out the reality that these procedures are best done by oral surgeons.
Finding oral surgeons who work to limit patient’s discomfort is also important. Providing things like IV sedation to make the procedure less traumatic is very critical. This procedure should not leave patients in pain for years. It is still surgery, so even under the best care most patients recover from this procedure over the course of a month or so.
