Wisdom Teeth Removal in North Haledon NJ

Wisdom teeth often cause problems for our patients when they are trying to erupt. For this reason, many people end up having wisdom teeth removal in North Haledon NJ, by our dentist Anna J. Huh, at our dental practice, Anna J. Huh, D.M.D.

Wisdom teeth are extremely prone to problems while they erupt. They are a common source of pain and infection for patients. Since wisdom teeth do not serve a function in the mouth, they do not need to be replaced with dental implants or other tooth replacements after wisdom teeth removal in North Haledon NJ is performed. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt in the human mouth. This generally occurs between the ages of 17 and 21. By the time these teeth erupt there is often little room left in the mouth. For this reason, wisdom teeth often encounter many different problems when erupting and can end up trying to come in sideways, only partially erupt, or can even become trapped. When wisdom teeth become trapped it is said that the wisdom teeth are impacted. All of these eruption problems can cause pain for our patient. They can also lead to infection, and other problems including swelling and irritation in the mouth. If you are experiencing tooth pain, and our dentist sees that it is being caused by wisdom teeth, she very well may recommend that your wisdom teeth are extracted. Our dentist is able to extract your wisdom teeth at our dental office while you remain perfectly comfortable due to our use of modern dental anesthesia. Dentists agree that keeping wisdom teeth is not important, and it can even cause dental problems. Wisdom teeth can cause shifting of surrounding teeth, jaw pain, and can even interrupt our patient’s normal sinus functioning. Our dentist will let you know whether or not your wisdom teeth should be extracted.
