Wisdom tooth extraction for Orem, UT

Understanding Wisdom Teeth and Their Removal

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 21. While some individuals may not experience any issues with their wisdom teeth, many face complications such as infection, gum problems, tooth decay, and pain. Riverwoods Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, situated conveniently in Provo, UT, offers expert wisdom teeth extraction services for residents in Orem, UT.

When Should Your Wisdom Teeth Be Removed?

The optimal time for wisdom teeth removal is during the late teenage years or early twenties. At this stage, the roots of the wisdom teeth have not fully developed, making extraction relatively easier. Delaying removal can lead to complications, including nerve damage and prolonged recovery.

Why Removal is Crucial

Wisdom teeth often lack adequate space to emerge fully, resulting in impacted teeth, overcrowding, and misalignment. Impacted teeth occur when the tooth partially emerges but remains covered by the gums, leading to discomfort and difficulty in cleaning. Regular dental check-ups are essential for monitoring wisdom teeth development. If you experience pain or discomfort, seeking prompt dental attention is imperative to prevent further complications.
