Wisdom Teeth Removal From Your Dentists in Littleton
If you have wisdom teeth – the third set of molars that typically erupt between the ages of 17 and 25 – you may be wondering if you should keep or have them removed. After all, while some people can keep their wisdom teeth without problems, most people will eventually require extraction.
Why? Wisdom teeth can cause a lot of problems when left in place. They can become impacted, meaning they get stuck in the jaw and don't grow in properly, which can lead to pain and infection. Additionally, they can crowd your other teeth and cause bite problems, which can cause pain, damage to other teeth, and gum disease. By choosing to have them removed, you can avoid all of these issues and keep your smile healthy and looking its best.
What’s involved with having your wisdom teeth extracted?
Wisdom teeth removal is a very common procedure, and most people recover from it quickly and without complications. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia, so you won't feel any pain during the surgery. Recovery from wisdom teeth removal usually takes a few days to a week. You may have some swelling and bruising, and you'll need to take it easy for a few days while your mouth heals.
