Understanding why wisdom teeth removal may be necessary for Knoxville patients

wisdom teeth removal may be necessary for Knoxville patients

In most cases, patients have wisdom teeth removed, almost as a “rite of passage” into adulthood. In the teenage years, or sometimes as late as the early thirties, many people have their wisdom teeth extracted. They may be removed after they have erupted through the gums, or surgically removed before they have reached the gum line. Every patient’s situation is different, so it is important that a dentist such as Dr. Foncea, of Sequoyah Dental Arts, complete a full examination and consultation to assess his or her needs.

There are a few main reasons a patient may need wisdom teeth removal. Knoxville residents can visit Sequoyah Dental Arts to learn if this oral surgery might be required. Wisdom teeth can be unpredictable. In some cases, they can become impacted, or stuck in the jaw because they cannot erupt through the gums or are turned the wrong direction. This can cause pain and discomfort for the patient. Other times, they may erupt through the gums, but be difficult to clean due to the fact that they are at the very back of the mouth, which can be hard to reach with a toothbrush. This makes them more susceptible to gum disease and tooth decay, as well as the accumulation of plaque and tartar, which can result in bad breath. For others, it is important to remove the teeth if the patient has had orthodontic treatment so the new teeth don’t cause misalignment once again by crowding them. These are all typical scenarios that wisdom teeth can cause, and are the most common situations patients can face.

Patients can discuss with Dr. Foncea the benefits of wisdom tooth removal. Knoxville patients can visit his practice by scheduling a consultation appointment. The team at Sequoyah Dental Arts will determine whether oral surgery is necessary to improve a patient’s oral health or avoid problems that are associated with wisdom teeth. Sequoyah Dental Arts is happy to assist both new and existing patients with their dental needs.
