Wisdom Teeth Extractions - Glenpool, OK
Maintaining a Healthy, Uncrowded Smile
By the time your wisdom teeth are ready to emerge from your gums, there often isn’t enough space left in your mouth for them to erupt properly. As a result, you could suffer from a painful impaction, or your other teeth could become overcrowded or infected. For this reason, our dentists will often recommend having wisdom teeth removed as early as possible, and they’ll do everything they can to make sure the procedure is as painless and stress free as possible for you. Contact us today if you or a loved one is around the age for third molars to appear.

When Can Wisdom Teeth Be Kept?
Removal is almost always necessary if the wisdom tooth is trapped under the gums, but if it’s able to erupt without harming your other teeth, you should be able to keep it as long as it doesn’t cause any pain or contribute to tooth decay or gum disease. That said, the teeth near the back of the mouth are the most difficult to keep clean, so make sure that you brush and floss them well. We can examine your mouth to see whether or not your wisdom teeth are likely to cause problems before scheduling an extraction.
