Your wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt. By the time these teeth begin to emerge, there is rarely enough space for them to emerge properly, which can lead to tooth damage, infection and many other problems. Our dentist and team offer wisdom teeth extractions to remove these teeth from your mouth and prevent any problems from occurring.
Some of the problems which may occur when your wisdom teeth erupt include:
- Impacted (trapped) teeth
- Changes to your tooth alignment
- Damage to neighboring teeth
- Tooth decay
- Infection and inflammation of the surrounding tissues
- The formation of cysts
- Damage to the supporting jawbone and other oral structures
When you visit Newport Dental, we will carefully examine your mouth to determine the position of your wisdom teeth in relation to your other teeth. This will help us determine if wisdom teeth removal is a good option for you. If it is, we will work with you to ensure that your wisdom teeth removal procedure is as comfortable as possible, and we will provide you with post-op instructions to help you heal without complications afterward.
We invite you to call us at 425-641-5303 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Brian Han and learn more about wisdom teeth removal in Bellevue, Washington. We are dedicated to your smile and oral health.
