The Russell Anderson Jr. Dentistry Guide To Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth And Your Kennesaw Dentist

At Russell Anderson Jr. Dentistry, we do wisdom teeth extractions.

Let’s consider these unpredictable (and somewhat mysterious) teeth.

Wisdom teeth are the last of the molars to erupt from the gum. They usually come in in the late teens and early twenties. Not all people develop these teeth. Those that do can have one, two, three, or four.

Some Kennesaw dental patients never experience any issues with these extra molars. But sometimes wisdom teeth can result in dental complications.

If the wisdom teeth do not have the room to develop and come in normally, they are referred to as impacted wisdom teeth.

An impacted tooth may never emerge from the bone and gum, emerge only partially, or come in sideways.

Impacted teeth can damage the adjacent molar, cause infection, or trigger gum disease. Sometimes these conditions cause no noticeable symptoms for a period of time. To prevent these complications, Doctor Anderson may recommend extraction.

Wisdom teeth symptoms include pain when opening mouth, gum swelling, bad breath, and pain when chewing. These indicators can be nonstop or intermittent.

To learn more about wisdom teeth extraction, call us to schedule an exam. We can accommodate your schedule.
