Beautiful Smiles Start with Healthy Teeth and Gums
- Posted on: Jul 10 2020
The normal adult mouth has 32 teeth that are as unique as your fingerprints. But lurking in the back of your mouth are two extra molars, which most people do not have enough room in their mouth to hold. In these cases, the extra molars (known as wisdom teeth) can be extracted to prevent them from growing in crooked, erupting only partially, or leading to other complications. At the office of Mainland Dental Associates, our staff includes skilled oral surgeons who are experts in wisdom teeth evaluation and extraction.
The good news is that if your wisdom teeth do not cause you any pain or dental issues, you may not need to ever have them removed. But signs and symptoms that spell potential trouble include:
- pain and aching
- problems eating
- food stuck in gums
- cyst formation around the tooth
- sinus problems (caused by tooth roots)
- crooked teeth
- gum inflammation
Although having teeth pulled is not the most pleasant of experiences, we will do our utmost to keep you comfortable and relaxed during the process. You’ll benefit from an end to any gum pain you may be having, and you’ll help avoid serious oral health complications that can ensue from overcrowding of teeth.
