Wisdom teeth are an extremely common source of tooth pain. If you are experiencing tooth pain, and think you may need wisdom teeth extraction in Savannah, you will definitely want to visit us at Habersham Dental, where you will be treated by our expert dentists, just one of whom is Dr. Lawrence Schmitz.
There are many reasons why a wisdom tooth may need to be extracted. Problems often occur with wisdom teeth because they are the last teeth in the mouth to erupt. This means that by the time the wisdom tooth is ready to erupt, there is often little to no room left in the patient’s mouth for this to occur. Wisdom teeth can end up being trapped beneath the gums or jawbone, in which case they are said to be impacted. Wisdom teeth can also cause infection to develop in the mouth. Sometimes a wisdom tooth will begin to erupt and then stop. When this occurs, a gap is left between the tooth and the gums. This gap becomes a place where materials can gather, and infection can develop. Other times, wisdom teeth will end up erupting in the wrong location. This can end up disrupting the beautiful appearance of the patient’s smile, or can even ruin many years of expensive orthodontic care. When you need wisdom teeth extraction in Savannah, our dentist can perform this service for you while you remain comfortable in our dentist’s chair. When wisdom teeth are extracted, they generally do not need to be replaced because wisdom teeth are not needed for complete chewing, or so that the patient can have clear speech. If you have impacted wisdom teeth, you may experience extreme pain, inflammation, and even infection in your mouth.
