Wisdom Teeth Extraction in Porter, TX
Getting your wisdom teeth removed sounds like a terrifying experience but it might not be as bad as you think. At Porter Smiles Dental, we offer wisdom teeth extractions when these molars are impacted or causing pain. Decayed teeth may be removed when root canal therapy is not an option. When a tooth has been cracked or damaged and involves part of the structure below the gum line, it may need to come out. There are several reasons a the tooth may need to be extracted, such as:
- Your wisdom teeth cause you pain or misery.
- You have gum disease or tooth decay, which can make your wisdom teeth susceptible to disease or decay
because they are difficult to get to for treatment and/or cleaning. Your mouth doesn’t have room for these extra teeth.
- Your wisdom teeth grow in crooked or at an angle, which can push and move your nearby teeth.
Wisdom tooth removal
Occasionally, teeth may need to be removed due to overcrowding. This can happen when the jawbone is too small to accommodate all the permanent teeth or when a primary tooth has failed to fall out. For a simple tooth extraction of one molar, a local anesthetic can be used and the tooth can be pulled. However, many wisdom teeth extractions are more involved and require surgery to remove the tooth.
