Wisdom Tooth Extractions – Coronado, CA
It’s Wise to Remove Harmful Third Molars
Many years ago, wisdom teeth served a purpose for our ancient ancestors. When our molars and premolars inevitably fell out due to lack of proper oral care and food scarcity, our wisdom teeth could act as replacement teeth for our survival. Now that neither of these issues are present, wisdom teeth are more problematic than helpful. If your wisdom tooth (teeth) appear and begin to cause problems with your oral health, Advanced Dentistry can make a difference. Call our dental office to schedule your next extraction!
Why Should I Have Wisdom Teeth Removed?
In most cases, the mouth cannot accommodate additional teeth. This is typically the case whether all four or just one wisdom tooth is erupting. Wisdom teeth can easily cause existing teeth to shift out of place to compensate, making your smile crooked and bite uneven. It can also increase your risk for oral infections, especially if the tooth gets trapped underneath the existing gum tissue. This is known as impaction and can be very serious if left untreated.
