Not everyone needs to get their wisdom teeth out-but if your mouth doesn’t have room for one to four extra teeth, you should schedule your wisdom teeth removal. The vast majority of people don’t need additional teeth in their mouth, and leaving wisdom teeth in can lead to problems like overcrowding, cysts, and oral infections.
Fortunately, wisdom teeth removal isn’t very difficult, and the recovery time isn’t very long. At Schererville & Chesterton Family Dentistry, our qualified dentists can remove your wisdom teeth efficiently and safely. We do our best to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
Learn More About Wisdom Teeth
For most people, wisdom teeth simply aren’t necessary. Plus, leaving them in can cause wisdom tooth pain. Wisdom teeth are also prone to developing cavities-once they emerge through the gums, they’re difficult to reach, so you can’t brush and floss them properly.
Many people have impacted wisdom teeth, which means the teeth grow in at a slant. They run into other teeth or bone and can’t fully emerge. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain and can eventually damage your other teeth.
If you’re experiencing wisdom tooth pain, get in touch with our Schererville, IN or Chesterton, IN office. When we remove your wisdom teeth, we numb the area, so you shouldn’t feel any pain. We remove the wisdom teeth and stitch the area.
