Preserving Oral Health with Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Dentist in Irving, TX

For some individuals, all four wisdom teeth erupt in the correct positions without complications. Not everyone is so lucky, however. Patients without enough room for wisdom teeth or whose wisdom teeth have become impacted will need them extracted to preserve a healthy bite and prevent damage to adjacent teeth.

Our team at Kids and Grownups Dental in Irving, TX, provides wisdom tooth extraction at our office. If necessary, we can also offer nitrous oxide sedation to calm anxious patients and reduce discomfort.

Reasons for Extraction

Known as wisdom teeth, our third set of molars typically erupts in our late teens to early twenties. While this was useful when tooth loss was more common, improvements in oral healthcare have led fewer lost teeth and, consequently, to less space in the jaw. As a result, wisdom teeth often erupt abnormally, leading to pain, infection, and damage to adjacent teeth.

An impacted wisdom tooth can become trapped beneath the gums and potentially lead to infection.
