At Sedaros Oral Surgery we not only address current oral issues, but also issues that may arise in the future. Wisdom teeth can affect your mouth in several different ways, even if they’ve yet to erupt.
Though impacted wisdom teeth don’t always present with symptoms, removal is typically recommended in order to avoid possible future dental issues. Patients that do not initially experience any wisdom tooth pain or other side effects may be hesitant to undergo oral surgery, however it is important to note the possibility for dental problems later on. Here are several reasons early extraction should be considered:
- Issues involving wisdom teeth can be unpredictable.
- Disease can breed even in asymptomatic wisdom teeth.
- Wisdom teeth make your mouth more susceptible to cavities and gum disease.
Removing your wisdom teeth as a young adult can help reduce the risk of surgery complications. The earlier you seek extraction, the less likely you are to experience dental problems down the road. If you have not yet had your wisdom teeth removed, contact your Melbourne, FL oral surgeon today for a consultation.
