Signs You Need Your Wisdom Teeth Removed
Wisdom teeth show up late to the party. They’re your third set of molars that typically don’t come in until after you turn 17. You might not even know you need them removed until Dr. Roeder or Dr. Kulp mentions it at one of your biannual dental exams. But some signs can be:
- Jaw or ear pain
I have a fear of dentists, have had for years. I had really a lot of problems with my teeth, so I had a lot of experiences. I'm way older than I look, so back in the day, about 100 years ago, really dentists were brutal. I really disliked going to the dentist so much, but it is Dream Dentistry here. They really take care of you. You don't have to worry about it. Whatever level of anxiety you have, they have some way of addressing it. First he tells jokes, and then he can use nitrous oxide, which is a soporific. It just makes you relax and little bit quieted, but you're still alert. You know what's going on.
Secondly, even at that stage, he tells you exactly what he's going to do so you're not laying there wondering, "What's happening? How long is this going to take? " He really keeps you informed. Third, if it's more invasive surgery type of experience, they can put you to sleep in a safe way. They go over the top. They'll give you a blanket, a pillow, whatever will make you feel more comfortable. Because sometimes you're fearful, you do get cold, and sometimes I come in and the air conditioning's on maybe. Even though it's a hot day, I feel very, very cold, more so in the air conditioning. Then they will cover you up.
At the end of the process, they give you warm cloths to wipe your face because you get stuff on your face maybe. You just feel comforted. They take of you, and they give you a milkshake at the end because it's going to be hard to eat if you have had something done on your mouth. I'm not afraid to make the appointment, let's put it that way, and then I get here, and I don't feel any pain. There's never any discomfort at all. That's the best part about it.
Scheduling Your Wisdom Tooth Removal
Most of us will have our wisdom teeth removed at some point because they tend to come in at an angle or cause crowding. They can be blocked by your other molars, also known as impacted wisdom teeth. Call us for a comprehensive dental exam so we can tell you if yours need removal.
