Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom Teeth Removal in Pasadena
Wisdom teeth are the most commonly extracted teeth. Our third molars, much like the tailbone and the appendix, are remaining organs which no longer serve an essential function. The strained eruption of these extra molars can pose a risk to your oral health, causing discomfort and orthodontic problems. It is a good idea to proactively extract the wisdom teeth to avoid long-term issues or extract them at the first sign of an eruption.

Why Remove the Wisdom Teeth?
For some, it may seem unnecessary to remove the wisdom teeth early. It’s easy to perceive the issue as nonexistent when you aren’t experiencing discomfort. However, given time, the wisdom teeth can impact, complicate chewing, and even shift other teeth out of alignment.
When your wisdom teeth are impacted, the body will send signals to let you know there is a problem. At first, you may experience toothache-like symptoms that are intermittent and easily manageable with over the counter pain medications. If not examined and treated properly, impacted wisdom teeth can contribute to more serious conditions, including:
- Periodontal disease
- Trapped food or debris
- Tooth decay
- Damage to nearby teeth
Keep in mind that erupted, symptom-free wisdom teeth can still be problematic. Because of their deep position within the mouth, the third molars are difficult to keep clean. If you’re prone to cavities or gum disease, preventive wisdom teeth removal is smart, proactive treatment choice.
