Unless you are one of the lucky few, if you are in your late teens or early twenties, it is either time or very close to time for you to have your wisdom teeth removed. If that time has come, please call Kathy Cosmetic Dentistry at 818-347-1550 and make an appointment with Dr. Kathy Daroee, our dentist, for wisdom teeth removal in Woodland Hills, California.
Also known as third molars, wisdom teeth get their name from the fact that they erupt after childhood, when a person has supposedly grown wiser with age. But because they erupt so late, there is often not enough space for them to properly emerge. They may erupt at an improper angle or even remain partly or completely in the jaw or under the gums. This can cause problems for your smile such as issues with your tooth alignment, damage to your other teeth or jaw, infections and inflammation in your gums, cysts and increased incidents of tooth decay. In rare occasions, some people do not need to have their wisdom teeth removed, however, Dr. Daroee will be able to make that determination for you. Some of the signs that it may be time to call our office for a wisdom tooth appointment include pain or swelling around your jaw, problems opening your mouth, problems with your gums and even bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact our team today.
