Owasso Wisdom Tooth Services for Improved Oral Health

Almost everyone deals with wisdom teeth at some point in life, and if that time has come for you or someone in your home, then it is time to call Lexington Dental of Owasso. Wisdom teeth are commonly known as third molars and are often the last teeth to erupt from the gumline. As such, the mouth usually does not have enough space for the wisdom teeth to grow in properly. If the wisdom teeth cannot fit, Dr. Cary may recommend having your wisdom teeth removed to avoid complications.

Common Complications of Wisdom Teeth

If wisdom teeth grow in at odd angles or become impacted (a condition where teeth cannot grow through gum tissues or the jawbone), they may lead to several harmful dental conditions, such as:

  • Teeth misalignment
  • Damaged jawbones
  • Infection
  • Tooth decay
  • Oral cysts
  • Damaged surrounding teeth

It’s Wise to Remove Your Wisdom Teeth

Dr. Cary may recommend removing your wisdom teeth to avoid these complications. The procedure itself should be quick and efficient to help ensure you have a positive dental experience. Our team will carefully examine your mouth and bite to see if wisdom teeth removal is necessary for the health of your smile. If it is, we will consult with you so that you know what to expect before, during, and after your wisdom teeth removal.
