If you're experiencing jaw pain or are wondering if wisdom teeth extraction might be necessary or helpful for your smile, at Distinctive Dental Care in Oswego & Bloomingdale, we’re here to help. Our team would be happy to assess your mouth and help you gain an accurate understanding of your unique oral health condition and whether extracting these teeth will benefit your smile.

What are wisdom teeth and why do we have them?

Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to develop in our mouths, usually emerging between ages 17 and 25. While these teeth can develop without issue for some patients, they can cause problems in others when they become impacted (stuck in the gums or jawbone). When this occurs, they can cause misalignment of other teeth, damage to the jawbone and nerves around them, and increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

When is wisdom teeth extraction necessary?

Based on your individual needs, we'll assess your mouth and make recommendations that will help you maintain a healthy, functional smile. Most wisdom teeth extractions are recommended when wisdom teeth are impacted and at risk of causing damage to other teeth or the jawbone. In some cases, removing these teeth proactively can help reduce the risk of gum disease and tooth decay in the future.

Why can some people keep their wisdom teeth intact?

When it comes to these teeth, every patient's needs are different. Some people won’t experience any damage or pain as a result of the development and growth of wisdom teeth while others will need these teeth removed in order to protect the rest of their smile. Rest assured that our team will assess your unique smile and make a recommendation that is tailored to your individual needs.

Keeping your smile healthy and functional is always our focus at Distinctive Dental Care. Should you require wisdom teeth extraction, rest assured that our team will do everything we can to help you get back to smiling with confidence!
