Arts Family Dentistry of Dallas welcomes patients of all ages along with their families, and naturally, that includes any young adults who are around the age where their wisdom teeth are expected to come in. Since the wisdom teeth come in much later than the other teeth, there isn’t usually enough space to accommodate them, and they can become trapped in the gums, ultimately putting the patient’s oral health at risk. To avoid such problems, we can perform an extraction so that troublesome wisdom teeth never have a chance to cause lasting damage. Give us a call to learn more about our approach wisdom tooth extractions in Dallas, TX.
It’s sometimes possible to keep wisdom teeth if they are able to erupt fully and don’t cause any damage to the rest of the smile. That said, an extraction may be the only option if wisdom teeth become fully or partially impacted, which can cause pain, crowded teeth, and dental infections. We can evaluate your wisdom teeth and check to see if they’re likely to cause any problems in your mouth when left alone; if they are, we’ll take steps to have them removed as soon as possible.
