Cedar City Wisdom Tooth Removal
Just about everyone has to get Cedar City wisdom tooth removal at some point in time. Wisdom teeth are infamous for causing problems and having to be removed. There are a variety of reasons why your dentist might recommend that you get a wisdom tooth extraction. Although it’s not fun, often times it’s in your best interest to do so.
Although there are a number of reasons why your dentist might recommend that you get a Cedar City wisdom tooth removal, one very common reason that isn’t due to a serious issue is to prepare for orthodontic work. If a patient has to get braces, the wisdom teeth might have to be extracted to make room for the orthodontic work and to ensure that the wisdom teeth will not cause an issue while the patient is wearing his or her braces. Since braces are supposed to be permanent and remain in the teeth for years, wisdom teeth erupting in the wrong places during orthodontic treatment could disrupt and interfere with the treatment. This is avoided by extracting the wisdom teeth before orthodontic work even starts. Another common reason wisdom teeth would have to be removed is if they get impacted within the jaw. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause a lot of oral health problems including an infection or a cyst that could damage the root and supporting bone of the tooth. Another issue that typically leads to a wisdom teeth extraction is when they only partially emerge from the gums. When this happens, it’s very difficult to see them or to clean them. As a result, bacteria accumulate, and this accumulation of bacteria can lead to oral infection and gum disease.
