Our skilled dentist and dental team at White Mountain Dental are dedicated to meeting all of your family’s dental needs, including providing wisdom teeth removal. Wisdom teeth removal is often needed for wisdom teeth that are impacted or when there is simply not enough room for the wisdom teeth in the mouth. The wisdom teeth, also referred to as the third molars, are the last teeth to erupt in your mouth, and there is often not enough space for them to grow in properly. This often leads to the teeth growing in sideways, at an angle, or becoming stuck in the gums and jawbone (called impaction). If the wisdom teeth grow in incorrectly, it can lead to several complications, including:
- Damage to the adjacent teeth
- Infection in the gums
- The formation of cysts and abscesses
- Tooth decay
- Disruption to the alignment of the teeth
We provide wisdom teeth removal in Rock Springs, Wyoming to avoid these problems. Dr. Tyler Carlson will use X-rays and, if needed, 3D cone beam imaging to determine whether your wisdom teeth should be removed. Our dental team will ensure that your wisdom teeth removal is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. To learn more, we invite you to contact us today.
