Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom Teeth Extraction IN HIALEAH, FL

Wisdom teeth extraction is a dental procedure in which one or more wisdom teeth are removed from the mouth. Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to erupt in the back of the mouth, usually between the ages of 17 and 25. In many cases, wisdom teeth can cause problems such as pain, infection, and damage to surrounding teeth, and may need to be removed.

Who are the candidates?

The eligibility for wisdom teeth extraction is typically determined by our dentist or oral surgeon in Hialeah, FL, who will evaluate your oral health and the condition of the wisdom teeth. Some common reasons for wisdom teeth extraction include:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth: If the wisdom teeth are unable to fully erupt due to lack of space or improper alignment, they may become impacted, which can cause pain, infection, and damage to nearby teeth.
  • Infection or decay: If the wisdom teeth are decayed or infected, they may need to be removed to prevent further damage to surrounding teeth and gums.
  • Crowding: If the mouth is too small to accommodate the wisdom teeth, they may push surrounding teeth out of position, leading to crowding and misalignment of the teeth.
  • Orthodontic treatment: If the wisdom teeth are causing problems with orthodontic treatment, they may need to be removed to allow for proper tooth movement and alignment.

Anyone who has wisdom teeth that are causing problems or is at risk of causing problems in the future may be eligible for wisdom teeth extraction in Hialeah, FL. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, and recovery time varies depending on the complexity of the extraction and the patient’s overall health. It is important to follow your dentist’s instructions at LA Family Dentistry for aftercare to promote proper healing and minimize the risk of complications.
