Wisdom Teeth Removal in Tampa, Brandon & Surrounding Areas
If you or your teen seems to be experiencing uncomfortable jaw or tooth pain, it may be time to talk to a dentist about wisdom teeth removal. Adults and teens alike may need their wisdom teeth removed at some point in their lives due to issues such as overcrowding or toothache. One of our dentists at Dental Associates of Florida will be able to determine if removal is necessary. Through x-rays, our dentist will discover any extra molars that may have grown in between the ages of 17-25.
Some symptoms that may indicate the need for a wisdom teeth removal procedure include:
- Impacted molars – Your wisdom teeth may become impacted, or stuck in your jaw or gums due to abnormal growth patterns.
- Overcrowding – If your wisdom teeth come in at any strange angles or press or move against your other teeth causing crowding or pain, you may need to remove them.
- Size and room – Your mouth may not have the space or room for the extra set of molars, causing a toothache or other associated jaw pain.
- Disease or decay – Your extra teeth may become infected by gum disease or if they have cavities on them, removal might be a solution.
After determining the cause of your toothache, one of our dentists will then develop a unique treatment plan according to your needs. Based on your x-rays and symptoms, a removal procedure may be necessary. The procedure is outpatient, and you will be feeling back to normal within a few days. The only difference is your toothache will be gone! It is often necessary to remove these pesky, extra molars, and their removal will increase your quality of life, as well as your overall oral health.
