Wisdom Teeth Treatment & Removal
Wisdom teeth are a set of molars that may or may not grow in during your teenage or young adult years. For many people, the emergence of wisdom teeth can lead to problems with overcrowding in the mouth and cause other teeth to move out of alignment, which is especially problematic if you already had braces or other orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth.
Not everyone has wisdom teeth; those who do have them may not have a full set of four, or the ones you do have may be impacted (positioned up against another tooth or bone in a way that makes it unlikely to grow in normally). Regardless of how many wisdom teeth you have, our dentists can help you decide if wisdom teeth removal in Boise is the right choice for you.
Quick and Easy Wisdom Teeth Removal
The process of having wisdom teeth removed can be relatively simple, and our dentists offer a variety of treatment options to help minimize pain and anxiety that might be associated with having these teeth removed. Whether you prefer a simple local anesthetic, sedation, or hospital care, our dentists can provide you with high quality care using the latest tools and technologies to minimize pain and reduce discomfort throughout the process.
Should You Have Wisdom Teeth Removed?
The decision of whether or not to have your wisdom teeth removed is different for everyone, and should be made in consultation with one of our knowledgeable and experienced dentists. Some patients with healthy gums, wisdom teeth that are properly aligned, and plenty of space in their mouth may opt to avoid wisdom teeth removal altogether. Others who are experiencing high levels of pain or who are at high risk of damage to existing teeth if wisdom teeth are allowed to grow may decide that it’s best to have them removed.
Extracting your wisdom teeth sooner than later can help avoid some of the most common problems associated with impacted teeth, including:
- Frequent or ongoing pain
- Cysts and tumors that form around an impacted tooth
- Infection and inflammation in the area of the teeth
- Problems or complications with teeth and bite alignment
