At our state-of-the-art office, you will be under the care of dental professionals. Dr. Shaneka Scott, DDS is available to answer all your questions before the procedure. Here at Paris Children’s Dentistry, we are proud to offer wisdom teeth extraction for our patients in Paris, Texas and the surrounding area.
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars. Most people start to get their wisdom teeth when they are teenagers, though some teeth don’t come in until you are in your early twenties.
Wisdom teeth have a purpose. They are another set of molars, but more often than not they cause more problems than they are worth. Wisdom teeth can come in misaligned, facing any direction. They can even try to come in horizontally, growing into your other teeth. This can damage your nerves and even your jawbone.
There are also times when your wisdom teeth can become impacted and are not able to come through the gums. They can also come in partially, allowing food to catch in the area and cause plaque to build up. This can lead to bacteria and infection, which will only get worse.
Since wisdom teeth are often harmful, most dentists recommend their removal. The surgery goes much better if you get the teeth removed before any signs of a problem. The recovery is easier also. Surgery and recovery are also easier when you are younger.
Though surgery can be scary, our skilled dentists and the entire staff at Paris Children’s Dentistry will be glad to help you throughout the process. We will explain the whole procedure step by step until you are comfortable. We are also here for you after you go home. We are just a phone call away.
