Between the ages of 17 and 22, most young adults receive their last set of molars, the wisdom teeth. There are four wisdom teeth, two on the bottom and two on the upper jaw, one at each back corner of the mouth. While many people can accommodate these large molars without a problem, some are not as lucky. If wisdom teeth begin to crowd the other teeth or become impacted, it can cause dental and overall health issues. At Creative Dentistry & Medspa, we offer wisdom teeth removal for teens and adults at our clinic in Sandy Springs, GA.
More and more people are deciding to have wisdom teeth removed proactively when they first begin emerging. These large molars can take up too much space in smaller mouths, affecting tooth alignment and smile appearance. Some wisdom teeth will grow sideways or not emerge from the gums at all, which can cause pain, sinus problems or infections. Even when wisdom teeth arrive without a problem, they can be difficult to keep clean due to their position, resulting in decay and gingivitis issues. Removing them can eliminate many possible issues, and they are not needed for normal oral function.
Stress-Free Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth removal is oral surgery, but it does not need to be a stressful or painful experience. Our dental professionals at Creative Dentistry & Medspa ensure our patients are comfortable for their procedure. We offer sedation dentistry as an option to keep patients relaxed while we perform the extraction. Some patients may only have one wisdom tooth removed while others have all four – it depends on the patient and circumstances. Our dentists will explain all the options thoroughly before your procedure, and we will discuss aftercare to ensure you heal quickly from your wisdom tooth removal.
If you or your teenage child need wisdom teeth removal, contact our team at Creative Dentistry & Medspa. We can schedule a consultation at our dental center in Sandy Springs to discuss your procedure.
