Orland Park, IL
The thought of getting your wisdom teeth extracted may seem painful but the truth is that these days the procedure is not as invasive as it used to be, and neither is the healing time very long. While professionals like us try to save your teeth as often as possible, sometimes it is necessary to remove wisdom teeth. They may be impacted, which is painful, or causing overcrowding. Especially if you have had orthodontic work done, you do not want your incoming wisdom teeth to overcrowd your newly aligned teeth.
If you are wondering whether you are an ideal candidate for wisdom tooth extraction, all you need to do is visit Orland Dental Care for a dental exam. Let our professionals check your dental issues to confirm whether or not a tooth extraction is required.
Prevents Misalignment And Overcrowding
In cases where you would like your wisdom teeth extracted or a crooked tooth removed, this can help to align your misaligned teeth and also help to prevent overcrowding. Overcrowding is an underrated dental problem that can create major complications when ignored. People tend to get crooked teeth, and this can result in overcrowding of the mouth, which not only results in various dental problems, but it can also increase the chances of an infection. If you need to get braces and you need your teeth to be straightened, extraction of a certain tooth may be necessary to create space for alignment.
In certain cases where there is extensive decay or damage, it is necessary to extract the tooth. When the tooth is not extracted it causes a lot of pain and discomfort to the person and this makes it difficult for you to even eat food regularly. Although we strive to save your tooth whenever possible, there are situations where the saving of the tooth is almost impossible and not removing it would result in severe gum disease and dental issues. This is why it is necessary to take out the tooth. When the extraction is complete and successful, the recovery is not very long. With successful wisdom tooth extraction, there is no infection left behind, and this keeps your gums healthy. Infections in the gums can spread rapidly and this not only creates a lot of problems for you but is also difficult to treat, and can spread to other areas of your body.
Better Oral Care
In order for you to maintain high levels of oral hygiene, it is necessary to have a clean mouth. When you have misaligned teeth or overcrowding, it is difficult to clean your mouth effectively and food particles tend to get stuck. In this situation, there is a higher risk of bacteria and infection setting in. If you want to maintain good oral hygiene, then extracting your wisdom teeth or a tooth that is causing misalignment is the right recommendation.
