What to Expect From Wisdom Teeth Removal in Costa Mesa

Posted on: December 2, 2016

Wisdom TeethIf you are considering a wisdom teeth removal in Costa Mesa, call our office and schedule a consultation. Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed. If there is room in your mouth for this third set of molars and they grow in properly, you could continue to live with them without experiencing any irritation. However, most people do not have enough room, and they grow in impacted as a result. This can lead to discomfort while also creating space for food to become trapped.

Signs you need to have your wisdom teeth removed:

Soreness or pain.

If your wisdom teeth hurt or the area is sore, you may need to have them extracted.

Gaps.

If you have a gap in between your wisdom tooth and your back molar, this can become a space where food becomes trapped and plaque builds up. If you are constantly reaching for a toothpick to remove food from this area, you should consider an extraction.

Have you been told by your orthodontist "YOU NEED YOUR WIDSOM TEETH OUT"?

Dr. Vanek will explain why what you’ve been told may not be correct. New scientific analysis is proving why third molars do not need to be removed in many cases.
