If you are experiencing tooth pain, and feel that your wisdom teeth may be causing problems, we urge you to visit us at our Akron Area Oral, Maxillofacial & Facial Surgery Center. At our oral surgery practice, our expert oral surgeon, Dr. Santin can provide you with Akron wisdom teeth extraction, if necessary.
Wisdom teeth often cause problems in a person’s mouth because they are the last set of teeth to erupt. Many times, by the time this occurs, there is no longer any room left in the patient’s mouth for the wisdom teeth. This can cause wisdom teeth to attempt to come in sideways, or to push other permanent teeth out of position while they are erupting. Wisdom teeth can also begin to erupt, and then stop erupting, causing gaps to become created in the gums in which infection can easily form. Wisdom teeth can also become impacted, or trapped, underneath the gums or bone. All of these situations can cause tooth pain, and serious problems in your mouth. Our oral surgeon can evaluate your particular wisdom tooth situation, and let you know if your wisdom teeth should be extracted. When a patient has impacted teeth, extremely serious problems may develop if the sac that surrounds the tooth becomes filled with fluid and forms a cyst. When Akron wisdom teeth develop problems, the problems can be extremely painful, and difficult to treat. For this reason, it may be wise to have your wisdom teeth extracted earlier, if it is found that problems are likely to develop at a later date. Our dentist can take x-rays of the mouth and predict if the wisdom teeth are going to cause future problems. If this is found to be the case, our oral surgeon will probably tell you to have the wisdom teeth removed earlier, rather than wait for problems to develop later.
