When you need wisdom teeth removal then schedule an appointment with our Oral Surgeon in Melbourne, FL, Dr. Steve Sedaros. You wisdom teeth will most likely need to be removed, unless you are one of the few people that have room in their mouth or their wisdom teeth never make an appearance. The average mouth is made to hold only 28 teeth, so when those extra four make their painful debut, it can cause problems within your mouth.
Your wisdom teeth are the last of your molars to erupt in your mouth and if they align properly and you happen to have enough room in your mouth then there’s no need to remove them. However, this isn’t the most common scenario. Wisdom teeth may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum, and even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone. Impacted teeth can take many positions in the bone as they attempt to find a pathway that will allow them to successfully erupt.
These poorly positioned impacted teeth can cause many problems. When they are partially erupted, the opening around the teeth allows bacteria to grow and will eventually cause an infection. The result: swelling, stiffness, pain, and illness. Dr. Sedaros and his oral surgery associates will be happy to discuss the removal of your wisdom teeth with you so you don’t experience any unnecessary pain so give our staff at Sedaros Oral Facial Surgery & Dental Implants a call today to schedule an appointment.
