Wisdom Teeth Extraction in the Ennis Area

The third molars, also known as wisdom teeth, are the final teeth to emerge and are most prone to issues. In the past, these large teeth were crucial for early humans to chew tough foods and replace lost teeth.

Moreover, our jaws have become smaller over time, leaving little room for these teeth to properly emerge, leading to them often getting stuck or impacted. This can cause various dental problems resulting in wisdom teeth extractions.

Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to difficulties in maintaining cleanliness in the back of the mouth, increasing the risk of bacterial buildup, decay, and gum disease near these teeth.

Furthermore, impacted wisdom teeth are at a higher risk of developing cysts or tumors and can cause discomfort and potential damage to adjacent teeth due to their continuous, albeit unsuccessful, eruption attempts.

Impacted Tooth Removal in Ennis

To prevent these potential issues, many individuals opt to proactively remove their wisdom teeth, even in the absence of symptoms.

The procedure to remove wisdom teeth involves a team of surgical experts, possibly including the removal of bone to access and extract the teeth. Our oral surgeons in Ennis conduct thorough examinations and use X-rays to plan the procedure accurately.

Typically, our wisdom teeth extraction services in Ennis are an outpatient surgery, allowing patients to go home shortly after the procedure. Many patients opt for sedation or anesthesia during the procedure, requiring a planned ride home post-operation.

Recovery from impacted tooth removal tends to be quicker for younger individuals, with a lower risk of complications. While the procedure can be beneficial at any age, it is generally recommended by our oral surgeons in Ennis to undergo wisdom teeth extraction before turning 25.
