Nearing Your Twenties? Bid Your Wisdom Teeth Farewell!

by on Jul.19, 2011, under General Dentistry

You may have lost all your baby teeth, but that doesn’t mean your smile is done changing. As you near your twenties, four more teeth are on their way in—your wisdom teeth.

But even if wisdom teeth are a natural part of your smile, modern mouths just don’t have room for them. In fact, leaving them alone to come in naturally could spell bad news for your oral health. That’s why, if you’re nearing your 20s and still have your wisdom teeth, it’s time to schedule an appointment to see Dr. Perez.

Your entire wisdom tooth extraction procedure can be done comfortably in our Grapevine dental office, and in just one visit.

What Can Happen If I Don’t Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Letting your wisdom teeth come in puts you at risk of two conditions: crowding and impaction.

Crowding occurs when your new molar forces existing teeth aside, shifting your bite’s alignment and leaving you vulnerable to gum disease, jaw pain, and a life of dental trouble.

An impacted wisdom tooth is one that’s tried to force its way through your gum any way it could—sideways, backwards, or even forwards—and has gotten stuck, becoming a magnet for infection, cysts, or even tumors.

But with a wisdom tooth extraction procedure from Dr.Perez’s Grapevine office, you can protect your smile and safeguard your health.

To find out more about this procedure, or to schedule a consultation visit with Dr. Perez, contact our Grapevine office today. We serve patients from all across the DFW metroplex.
