Our Torrance dentist office usually deals with a lot of wisdom teeth removals.
Patients visit our Torrance dentist when they experience toothaches. However, you should be visiting your dentist every six months for a check-up. During check-ups, your dental office will take x-rays of your teeth and make sure everything is looking up to par. What you can see and what your dentist sees are two different things.
Most times, wisdom teeth are something that your dentist will see before you can see or feel it in your mouth. Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars in a patients mouth.
Wisdom teeth are most known for causing patients pain or discomfort as they grow in. The unique thing about wisdom teeth is that they don’t necessarily always grow straight like the rest of your molars. Sometimes they grow in sideways or not all the way through, which is when discomfort occurs in your mouth and sometimes causes damage to surrounding teeth.
Wisdom teeth often have to be removed in order to prevent further damage to surrounding teeth and also the gum area. Often, patients do not feel their wisdom teeth growing in, but may still require their molars to be removed. Dentists will do this for preventative measures in order for no potential damage to be caused to surrounding teeth. Sometimes wisdom teeth can cause jaw damage, cavities, and sinus issues.
Your Torrance dentist will have the final say when it comes to removing your wisdom teeth or not. Some patients require only one wisdom teeth removed, some patients require all four, and some patients never even grow any wisdom teeth. It is important that you visit your dental office for more information and better diagnosis.
