Wisdom Teeth Removal And More In Hurst
Sometimes, having a tooth pulled is the best way to protect your beautiful and functional smile. A standard tooth extraction can resolve:
- Misshapen or long tooth roots
- Deep decay that puts the smile and jaw at risk
- Overcrowded teeth
- Irreversibly damaged or infected tooth
Dr. Hyatt is a conservative practitioner who will save your natural teeth whenever possible. He will only suggest tooth extraction and replacement if it is best way to preserve your smile.
When Dr. Hyatt recommends you have a tooth pulled, you can rest assured that we will make your experience comfortable. Before your procedure, you will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area and eliminate pain. The procedure itself will be fast and your recovery time will involve minimal discomfort.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that emerge through the gums, and they can cause countless problems. Some patients are able to accommodate their wisdom teeth without difficulty, but most patients are at risk for:
Impaction | Impacted wisdom teeth come through the gums at an angle, and they can cause severe pain. The wisdom teeth will come in unevenly or only partially. If your wisdom teeth are impacted we can refer you to an outstanding oral surgeon who can remove your wisdom teeth.
Structural Damage | Wisdom teeth can destroy the jaw and the rest of your natural teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth often become infected, and that infection can spread to the rest of your smile.
Misalignment | Many individuals do not have sufficient space in their mouths for a third set of molars. When the wisdom teeth emerge, their entire smile can become crowded and crooked.
Decay | Wisdom teeth are difficult to reach and clean properly. They may become a hideout for dangerous bacteria that will lead to deep decay.
