Wisdom Teeth Removal
When you reach a certain age, there is a new set of molars that can appear in your mouth. This third set is known as your “wisdom teeth.” If left unattended, these teeth can become impacted. Once they’re impacted, they become incredibly painful. So, it’s best to remove them before the situation gets out of hand. If your wisdom teeth are impacted or are about to become impacted then set up an appointment at our Upper Marlboro location to get them looked at. If your child needs the procedure done, then the process is the same. Dr. Fatemi is dedicated to providing comfortable and gentle dentistry. So, if you or your child is frightened by the idea of getting their wisdom teeth removed, then make an appointment with us at one of our offices. We have one in Upper Marlboro, Gaithersburg, and Lexington Park. We’re ready to ease your worries about wisdom teeth.
What does it mean when a tooth is impacted?
A tooth will become impacted when it is erupting, or growing in, and it doesn’t have enough space. It will push against the other teeth around it as it rises and cause major damage. This also causes a great deal of pain.
Why do wisdom teeth erupt?
It is said that the third set of molars were necessary for our ancestors who, due to the excessive wear on their teeth, would require another set as time went on. We don’t really need this third set anymore with the advances we have made in dental care and hygiene. So, now we have to have them removed. If you think you’re ready to have your wisdom teeth removed then give us a call and set up an appointment at our Upper Marlboro location.
