The importance of taking out wisdom teeth in Kennesaw, GA


Importance of Taking out Wisdom Teeth Kennesaw GA
Wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth to emerge and can be difficult to detect without x-rays. Many patients in Kennesaw, GA are unaware that third molars are growing underneath the gums. Misaligned or impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems for many individuals if not treated. At 32 Dental, we can take out wisdom teeth to prevent issues.

Why you may need to have your wisdom teeth removed

Misaligned wisdom teeth are those that emerge at an angle either toward or away from the teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth are those that don’t erupt or partially erupt due to lack of space.

Patients may experience some of the following issues when wisdom teeth begin to erupt:
  • Shifting of teeth as the wisdom teeth move the 2nd molars
  • Infection, pain, swelling from partially exposed wisdom teeth
  • Decay of the partially exposed teeth because they are difficult to reach when brushing
  • Gum disease
At 32 Dental, we recommend that most patients have their wisdom teeth removed in the mid-late adolescent years if they haven’t already started to erupt through the gums. During this time, the roots are not fully developed, which makes the extraction and recovery easier. As patients get older, the roots begin to grow longer, which can increase the risk of complications with the procedure.

Before your extraction, we perform a thorough exam along with x-rays and 3D imaging to allow us to determine the size and position of the wisdom teeth. The extraction is an outpatient procedure that can be done with sedation if desired.

Following your extraction, it is normal to experience swelling and mild discomfort. We will provide after-care instructions to improve comfort and minimize side effects.

If you are in the Kennesaw, GA area and would like more information about wisdom tooth extractions, call us at 770-423-1132.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

    My 8 year old son had to have 2 teeth pulled because the babies just didn't want to let go. The whole procedure went amazing! My son was like "Wait we're done already? I didn't feel anything! Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
