Protect Your Smile With Wisdom Teeth Removal & Tooth Extraction Services
At Plaza Family Dental in Peoria, AZ, we focus on providing our patients with effective and compassionate care. Two common procedures we perform are wisdom teeth removal and tooth extractions, which can be integral to protecting and improving a patient’s overall oral health.
Why do wisdom teeth sometimes need to be removed?
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. While some wisdom teeth grow in without any issues, many patients experience pain, infection, and other complications. In these cases, removing wisdom teeth is often necessary to eradicate pain and reduce the risk of future dental issues.
What benefits are associated with having wisdom teeth removed?
- Alleviating pain and discomfort: Wisdom teeth can cause significant pain, swelling, and discomfort. Removing them can alleviate these symptoms and improve your quality of life.
- Preventing infection and decay: Wisdom teeth can be challenging to clean and can easily trap food and bacteria, leading to infection and decay. By removing them, you can prevent these issues from occurring.
- Protecting surrounding teeth: If your wisdom teeth are impacted, meaning they don't fully emerge from your gums, they can push against surrounding teeth and cause damage. Removing them can protect your other teeth and prevent the need for further dental work down the line.
Why is tooth extraction sometimes necessary?
When a tooth is severely decayed or damaged, it may need to be removed to prevent further infection and decay. Tooth extraction can also be necessary for orthodontic treatment or to address overcrowding in the mouth.
What benefits are associated with having tooth extraction?
- Improved oral health: Removing damaged or infected teeth can improve your overall oral health and prevent further issues from occurring.
- Reduced pain and discomfort: As with wisdom teeth removal, extracting damaged or infected teeth can alleviate pain and discomfort.
- Improved appearance: In some cases, extracting teeth can improve the appearance of your smile by addressing issues like overcrowding or misalignment.
