Preserve Your Smile By Having Your Wisdom Teeth Removal in Lisle

Wisdom teeth removal in Lisle are the third and final set of molars most people develop in their late teens or early twenties. They are so named because they typically appear at a time when young people are considered to be developing wisdom.

Does everyone need to have their third molars removed?

A small percentage of people will be able to leave their wisdom teeth in place and not experience oral health problems. However, for most patients, wisdom teeth will eventually crowd or damage their nearby teeth, causing pain and even infection. It’s for this reason that we recommend that wisdom teeth be removed before problems start.

Experiencing a wisdom teeth infection after removal can be concerning. It's essential to follow post-operative care instructions provided by your dentist to prevent infections and promote healing. Additionally, it's not uncommon for wisdom teeth to cause headaches, as they can exert pressure on surrounding teeth and nerves. If you're experiencing persistent headaches or signs of infection after wisdom teeth removal, consult your dentist for further evaluation and treatment.

What benefits are associated with having wisdom teeth removed?

Extraction can help preserve the health and function of nearby teeth by preventing them from being damaged, misaligned, or crowded. It can also help reduce the pain and discomfort caused by wisdom teeth that become impacted or infected. In some cases, removing wisdom teeth can also improve a patient’s appearance by helping them achieve and maintain a straighter smile. However, it's important to manage the risk of wisdom teeth infection after removal, which can occur if proper post-operative care guidelines are not followed. Symptoms such as swelling, persistent pain, or pus from the extraction site should prompt immediate consultation with a dentist to prevent complications and ensure optimal healing.
