Normally, wisdom teeth are a problem for younger adults. But as the Guinness Book of World Records can tell you, in 2017 a 94-year-old Californian man had a wisdom tooth removed. At Sunrise Dental Studio, our dentist and team offer wisdom teeth extractions in Pasadena, Maryland, for non-impacted teeth. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Jennifer Yau for someone in your family, call Sunrise Dental Studio at 410-647-3595.
Your wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt. Because of this, they rarely have enough space to come in properly and often cause problems for your oral health and smile. Common problems caused by wisdom teeth include:
- Changes to your tooth alignment
- Tooth damage
- Tooth decay, infection and inflammation of the gums
- Damage to your jawbone
In many cases, our dentist will recommend that wisdom teeth be removed to prevent these problems from occurring and help you maintain good oral health. During your initial consultation, our dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and mouth, including taking X-rays to determine the position of your wisdom teeth. We will be able to determine if your wisdom teeth should be extracted. If they do need to be removed, our dentist will take care to ensure your comfort during your procedure and will provide you with post-op instructions to help you heal and recover.
