Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that begin to grow into the mouth when you reach your late teens or early twenties. Originally in prehistoric times, people had mouths large enough to allow the wisdom teeth to remain in the mouth permanently with no difficulty or discomfort. Now, however, we have evolved past the need for wisdom teeth. Our jaws have grown smaller over time and generally can no longer fit an additional set of teeth comfortably. This is why Florida Smiles Dental provides wisdom teeth extraction for the needs of our patients!
Because current jaws aren’t roomy enough for wisdom teeth, they often become impacted as the molars grow in. This means that a tooth is unable to fully rupture, whether because it is pressing against a bone, other teeth, or is simply at a difficult angle. In these cases, a wisdom teeth extraction is almost always necessary, as the pressure will crowd other teeth and create constant pressure and pain. That’s where Florida Smiles Dental comes in!
Our team will surgically remove the wisdom teeth in order to prevent further complications. Our dentists will explain every step of the procedure before proceeding and invite you to ask any questions that you have regarding this treatment. We want everyone to feel completely comfortable prior to the extraction.
After your wisdom teeth removal, we can recommend or prescribe pain relievers for your comfort. We strongly advise against drinking through a straw or smoking. While we will always insist that quitting smoking is the best thing that you can do for your body, the sucking motion that smoking and straw-drinking uses can pull at your incisions and reopen the blood clots in the areas. Speak with your dentist before your surgery if you would like a list of complete post-wisdom teeth extraction guidelines. We will do our best to ensure that our patients are as healthy as can be before, during, and after our treatments.
