Wisdom Teeth Removal in South Jordan
If you are curious about having wisdom teeth extracted, know that your dentist will do a complete dental exam to evaluate if the time is right. By assessing the teeth and gums during the examination and with the aid of dental x-rays, we are able to determine when to extract them. Timing is important when it comes to wisdom teeth because waiting too long can cause pain, damage to other teeth, and other dental isues.
Most patients have wisdom teeth extracted between the ages of 16 to 22. This helps speed up the recovery process because the jawbone is not as dense in younger years of life as it is in adulthood. Schedule your free consultation appointment today!
Why Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to grow in and are known for causing trouble which is why we recommend having them extracted. There is typically not enough room in the mouth for the wisdom teeth which means if they are allowed to grow in they’ll cause overcrowding and pain.
How To Prepare For
Wisdom Teeth Removal:
- Think of any questions so you can ask the dentist
- Stay calm. If you think this will be especially challenging ask the dentist about what sedation options are available
- Have soft foods available at home so you don’t have to leave the house for the first day of recovery
