3rd Molar Pain? Gentle Dentist in Frisco
The third and final set of molars that teenagers get, are usually referred to as the “wisdom teeth.” Most teens see them start to come in somewhere between the ages of 15-25. Although there is nothing necessarily wrong with having them, many people seek wisdom teeth extractions in Frisco because of side-effects such as:
- Pressure causing the other teeth to crowd together
- Pain and swelling
- Bad breath
- Cavities or gum disease that may spread to neighboring teeth
Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Not everyone needs their 3rd molars removed. Our West Frisco wisdom tooth extractions are typically reserved for cases where the teeth are difficult to clean or are interfering with the health of adjacent structures.
Please let us know if you are in any pain or swelling, as these may be a symptom of an underlying infection. Our West Frisco dentist will assess your wisdom tooth development with the help of a full mouth panoramic x-ray. From this image, we can see how large the tooth is and how it is setting in relation to other oral structures, which may be at risk.
Should it be in your best interest to have them removed, our West Frisco wisdom teeth extractions are usually competed along with the aid of sedation, for optimal comfort. As a licensed sedation provider, we can ensure the highest level of safety for our patients.
