Wisdom Teeth Removal in Peoria, AZ

Wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, typically emerge between the ages of 15 to 25 and can pose significant challenges to oral health for many individuals in Peoria, AZ. At our practice, we offer comprehensive evaluations and X-ray imaging to assess the condition of your wisdom teeth and determine if extraction is necessary.

While wisdom teeth removal is often considered a traditional procedure, its necessity varies depending on individual factors such as mouth shape, tooth size, and the positioning of the molars. We tailor our approach to each patient, considering their unique circumstances before recommending extraction.

Proactive removal of wisdom teeth can mitigate various potential issues, including overcrowding, TMJ problems, infections, decay, and damage to neighboring teeth. Positioned deep within the jawbone and often pressing against adjacent teeth, wisdom teeth can jeopardize the health of surrounding teeth if left untreated. Moreover, their location makes it difficult for them to maintain proper hygiene, increasing the risk of infections despite diligent oral care practices.

In cases where wisdom teeth develop infections or decay, opting for gum infection therapy or fillings may not be the most effective solution. Instead, removal is often the standard of care, ensuring proactive management and minimizing the risk of further complications.

Our team is dedicated to providing personalized care and guidance regarding wisdom teeth management in Peoria, AZ. Contact us today for a consultation to address any concerns about your wisdom teeth and explore your treatment options.

  • How do I relieve wisdom tooth pain?

    To relieve wisdom tooth pain, you can use over-the-counter pain relievers, apply a cold compress to reduce swelling, rinse your mouth with warm salt water, and maintain good oral hygiene.
