Local dentist in Worcester
If you are experiencing tooth pain, it may be due to wisdom teeth. In fact, more often than not, people experience problems related to their wisdom teeth, and need to have them extracted. At Pearla Dental, you can be seen by our local dentist in Worcester
, and have your wisdom teeth extracted, if necessary.
It is always our goal to try to save teeth whenever possible. However, it is extremely common for people to have problems with their wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are the last set of teeth to erupt in a person’s mouth, and our local dentist in Worcester sees many patients who are having problems with their wisdom teeth. Often there is simply not enough room left in the mouth for wisdom teeth to come in. Due to this problem, the wisdom teeth may become trapped beneath the jawbone or underneath the gums, in which case they are said to be impacted. Wisdom teeth can also become infected while they are in your mouth. Often, wisdom teeth will attempt to erupt, and will then stop partway. This will leave a gap between the tooth and gums, which will become an easy place for materials to gather and for infection to occur. Sometimes wisdom teeth end up coming in in the wrong location; they can even punish other permanent teeth out of their proper positions. Whenever wisdom teeth are causing any type of problem, our local dentist will usually recommend that they are extracted. At our office, our dentist can perform both simple and surgical extractions. We use either local anesthesia or IV sedation when this procedure is being performed. Wisdom teeth do not usually need to be replaced since they are not needed for complete chewing, or to allow a person to speak clearly.
