Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Removed?
The third set of molars, or wisdom teeth, usually erupts when a person is in their late teens or early twenties. Wisdom teeth, often referred to as third molars, can cause pain and discomfort when they attempt to erupt through the gums.
Wisdom teeth frequently need to be removed because they crowd or harm neighboring teeth. They may aggravate gum disease and lead to issues with speaking and chewing. Although removing your wisdom teeth is a standard treatment, it’s essential to discuss the risks and advantages with your dentist before deciding.
How Can I Tell if I Should Get My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Not everyone requires the removal of their wisdom teeth. It is best to make an appointment with one of our doctors to find out if you do. Our team can thoroughly examine your teeth to see whether you suffer from any of the following issues:
- Impacted wisdom teeth that obstruct other teeth as they erupt at an angle.
- Wisdom teeth that have partially erupted and become infected because they are challenging to clean.
- Wisdom teeth that encroach on neighboring teeth and push them out of position
- At Prairie Hawk Dental, we can resolve any of these issues.

A Fast and Comfortable Recovery
Prairie Hawk Dental will provide detailed information on what to do following your procedure. To ensure a quick recovery, following these directions carefully is crucial. For example, resting up after removing your wisdom teeth for a few days is vital. After the treatment, you can have some discomfort, bruising, and swelling. To assist you in managing any discomfort, we can prescribe pain medicine. If possible, eat only soft foods such as yogurt or ice cream and refrain from using straws for the first few days.
