Our dental oﬃce in St. Augustine provides wisdom teeth removal to help you keep your teeth, mouth, and smile healthy. The wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to come in and almost never have enough space to come in properly. When there is not enough space for these teeth, they can become impacted (unable to fully break through the gum tissues and jawbone) or grow in at an incorrect angle. This can cause a number of problems, including:
- Damage to neighboring teeth
- Infection and inﬂammation
- Damage to the jawbone
- The formation of cysts
- Tooth decay
- Changes in the bite and in tooth alignment, including misaligned and crowded teeth
When you visit our oﬃce, we will carefully examine your mouth, including the positions of your teeth. This examination may include X-rays. We will then determine if wisdom teeth removal is the best option for you, and if so, create a treatment plan to make your procedure as comfortable as possible. We will ensure that you are fully informed about your treatment and provide you with post-op instructions to help you heal properly after your wisdom teeth are removed.
