get my wisdom teeth removed san diego dentistThe third molars — or wisdom teeth — are a great example of teeth that can become more of a liability than an asset. Wisdom teeth are likely to become impacted, infected, poorly-positioned, or decayed, and they are not typically essential to your ability to chew. Most wisdom teeth are difficult to keep clean at home, making them even more likely to contribute to unwanted dental problems. As a result, an unhealthy wisdom tooth is often slated for removal, but the ultimate decision must be made on an individual basis.

As part of your Dental Express visit, your dentist will examine you to determine if your wisdom teeth are healthy and properly positioned. They may recommend removal if the following symptoms have occurred with your mouth:

  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Cysts
  • Tumors
  • Gum Disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Damage to surrounding teeth

You may also need to have your wisdom teeth removed to aid in treating other parts of your mouth such as preparation for orthodontic treatment or as part of a periodontal treatment plan.

At Dental Express, we are able to provide our patients the comfort and convenience of getting their wisdom teeth removed without the referral to a specialist.  Our dentists are very gentle and have many years of experience in removing both erupted and impacted wisdom teeth with efficiency and ease.
