Wisdom teeth often cause serious problems in the mouth. In fact, it is probably more likely that wisdom teeth will cause problems when trying to erupt, rather than not. For this reason, a patient will often need to have wisdom teeth removal in Bellevue NE.
If a patient comes to our dental practice, Capehart Family Dentistry, with problems with their wisdom teeth, our expert dentists, one of whom is Dr. Jeff Dworak, will almost always recommend that you have wisdom teeth removal in Bellevue NE at our office. Wisdom teeth are not needed for chewing, or for clear speech. So, when wisdom teeth encounter problems, they can simply be removed since they do not need to be replaced. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the mouth to erupt. However, since this is the case, there often there is not enough room left in the mouth for this to occur. As a result, wisdom teeth can experience and cause many different types of problems. Sometimes wisdom teeth will simply end up erupting in the wrong location. Other times, a wisdom tooth can end up pushing another properly-placed tooth out of position. Should this be allowed to occur, the patient will need to have orthodontic work performed to correct the damage done to the alignment of his or her smile. In this case, extraction should definitely be performed as soon as possible. Other times, a patient may experience severe tooth pain due to their wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth often become infected or trapped beneath the jawbone or gums. Other times, wisdom teeth may end up partially erupting, and then simply stop. This leaves a space between the teeth and gums where materials can gather and infection can easily form. At our dental practice, we offer a wisdom tooth extraction to prevent dental problems, ease toothache pain, and to help related infection to clear.
