Typically appearing between the ages of 17 and 25, wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that a person receives. Although these molars can be a valuable asset to a person’s mouth, most of the time they are misaligned, angled inward or outward, and can cause crowding which often requires permanent removal. Consulting with an experienced dentist in Beverly Hills can help you determine whether you have a need for wisdom teeth removal and help you understand the process and reasons why.
At Bedford Dental Group, we provide only the highest level of service to our patients and provide a comfortable environment for all procedures. We understand that the prospect of wisdom tooth extraction can be disconcerting for many patients but Dr. Naysan and his experienced staff work thoroughly to deliver optimal results while utilizing only the latest procedures and equipment.
Because these molars will commonly affect surrounding teeth as they develop, they become impacted, or in other words, “come in sideways.” The primary problem that many people experience regarding an impacted wisdom tooth is that there usually is not sufficient space for the teeth to enter the mouth while maintaining a healthy position. This can often result in periodontal disease, infections, and even the development of tumors or cysts in the jawbone. Wisdom teeth can also place pressure on other teeth and over time, this can contribute to crowding and cause damage to adjacent teeth.
If you begin to feel pain or discomfort due to your wisdom teeth, it is important that you consult with a qualified dentist as soon as possible. Through an X-Ray procedure, a dentist will be able to evaluate the presence and more importantly the alignment of your molars. It is common for your dentist to recommend extraction even before any problems progress. However, should you require this procedure after any complications arise, your dentist will determine your options. To schedule a complimentary consultation, please contact us at 310.278.0600.
