Why wisdom teeth extraction? Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop. They usually make their appearance in the late teens or early twenties, although they can appear as late as the early 30s. Unfortunately, there’s not always enough room for these teeth to fully break through the gums. Teeth that can’t fully erupt become “impacted” and are partially or completely enclosed within the jawbone or gum tissue. They can also partially erupt and assume a sideways position. Impacted wisdom teeth can become infected, cause pain or damage to adjacent teeth or the jaw bone and increase the risk of gum disease. They also entrap food particles and increase the risk for decay. Wisdom teeth extraction reduces the risk for future dental and gum problems and restores balance to your mouth
What can you expect when you visit? After a thorough examination and x-rays, Dr. Cherry will advise whether wisdom teeth removal is the best option. His Jacksonville, Florida dental office offers the most advanced diagnostic equipment including digital x-rays and CT scans when necessary. Dr. Cherry and his staff will work with you to set up a time for oral surgery in their Jacksonville office. They’ll ensure you understand the procedure, why it’s necessary and what’s involved. For your comfort, they offer sedation options including nitrous oxide and oral or intravenous sedation. His staff will work with you to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
After wisdom teeth extraction, Dr. Cherry will see you for a follow-up appointment to make sure you’re comfortable and healing properly. Most people recover quickly from wisdom teeth removal and reduce their risk for future oral health problems as a result.
