Sandy Springs Wisdom Teeth Removal

Many people in their late teens and early twenties are faced with dental problems when their wisdom teeth arrive. These final molars are infamous for causing pain and oral issues, from becoming impacted in the gums to growing in sideways. At Pure Dental Health, we can help those dealing with oral health issues from wisdom teeth. We offer wisdom teeth removal and sedation options for our patients in the Sandy Springs and greater Atlanta area.

Why do some people have wisdom teeth issues while others have none?
There are a variety of reasons that determine whether your wisdom teeth will cause any problems. First of all, it can be genetics. Some people are born with a smaller jaw that is poorly designed to accommodate these large molars. When there is no room for these last molars to come in, they grow in at an angle, often affecting other teeth. In some cases, the teeth never erupt from the gum. Dentists can monitor their growth, but it is hard to predict which way they will grow until they choose their path. While some people have wisdom teeth that grow straight and in their place, many do not and need oral surgery to have them removed.

What problems can impacted wisdom teeth cause?
Wisdom teeth that are impacted can cause many different issues. They can grow into the roots of surrounding teeth. They can become infested with cysts or cause inflammation. Teeth alignment can be affected, causing teeth to shift and become crooked. Even if these molars find a path to emerge, they can be difficult to clean and susceptible to decay. For many, having these last molars extracted is the best solution to avoid pain, dental misalignment and many other issues.

Is wisdom teeth extraction stressful?
While most people cringe when considering tooth extraction, it does not need to be a stressful experience.
