Wisdom Teeth Removal
The last and largest of the molars are the wisdom teeth. These four molars are the bookends of each row of teeth, with two on the top and two on the bottom. Most people receive their wisdom teeth near the time they become adults, either the late teens or early 20s. In some cases, wisdom teeth can cause disruption to the teeth alignment or pose other oral health issues. If you need wisdom teeth removal, our team at Johns Creek Dental Studio can provide a stress-free extraction procedure at our clinic in Alpharetta, GA.
Some people receive their wisdom teeth with no problems at all, while others may experience impacted, crooked or painful wisdom teeth. It is important to have wisdom teeth monitored as they arrive to ensure they emerge correctly and do not cause dental problems. Dr. Parikh takes care to watch the development of these large molars in our teen and young adult patients. If they become a problem, he may recommend one or more wisdom teeth be removed to protect the oral health of his patient.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth can be removed as a preventive measure or when they cause problems. Since these are the largest molars, they are more difficult to remove. Most wisdom teeth have four roots that connect to the jaw bone. They are easier to remove when they first come in before the bone is completely connected to the roots. If there is any indication the wisdom teeth will cause oral health concerns, it is best to remove them early to reduce risks of complications.
Even if wisdom teeth emerge without issues, they can cause problems down the road. Wisdom teeth are notoriously difficult to keep clean due to their position, often resulting in tooth decay, tartar and gum disease issues. If you have existing wisdom teeth that are impacting your oral health, we can remove these unnecessary molars with a pain-free procedure at our clinic in Alpharetta.
