Wisdom Teeth

If your wisdom teeth are impacted and you live in Burbank, CA, Toomin & Bieber can help.Wisdom teeth, if you have them, are typically the last teeth to erupt in the mouth. Also known as third molars, few people have room in their mouth for wisdom teeth, and most people must have them removed. Molars come in at varying points in a person’s life, usually with about six years of separation between each pair. The first set of molars tend to come in at around age 6, the second set at around age 12, and the third set at roughly age 18. Because so few people have room in their mouth for wisdom teeth, they frequently come in at the wrong angle, accompanied by pain and discomfort, and brimming with the possibility of infection and tooth misalignment.

When Wisdom Teeth Need To Be Removed


Sometimes, things can go wrong with wisdom teeth. They can be impacted, which means that they don’t successfully erupt from the gums and will cause crowding of the surrounding teeth. A frequent scenario is a wisdom tooth that partially erupts from the gum line at a sideways angle and grows into the second molars in the mouth. Sometimes, they can even be oriented backward or sideways. When teeth are impacted, they can easily lead to infection, which can sometimes lead to further tooth loss.

When Wisdom Teeth Do Not Need To Be Removed


On occasion, a patient will have enough room in their mouth for their wisdom teeth, and they will come in at the proper angle. Under these circumstances, it's totally fine to leave them in the mouth. When they aren’t causing problems, there is no reason to remove them. When they are a constant source of discomfort or pose a danger to your oral health, that’s when we will recommend wisdom teeth extraction.

Determining Whether You Need Wisdom Tooth Extraction


At Toomin & Bieber, we can help our Burbank, CA patients identify whether they need their wisdom teeth removed.Call us at (818) 748-9998 to schedule your no-obligation consultation to determine whether you need your wisdom teeth removed. During this consultation, we will take a series of digital x-rays using our 3D imaging scanner to see how your wisdom teeth are positioned, how much space you have in your jaw, and whether or not they will need to be extracted. We prefer to evaluate patients earlier rather than later, as an early diagnosis can give us the time to prepare an extraction plan. Once they start to come in, the procedure can become more complicated as they start to encroach on other teeth.

The Wisdom Teeth Extraction Procedure


Wisdom tooth removal procedures are commonplace, and something we have done many times. In every procedure we perform, our goal at Toomin & Bieber Aesthetic Comprehensive Dentistry is always to ensure the comfort of our patients. To ensure comfort, we typically sedate patients for this procedure and monitor them carefully throughout. We will discuss all sedation options, surgical risks, and post-operation care with you during the consultation, as well as after the procedure.
Please call us at (818) 748-9998 to schedule your appointment today and determine whether you need to remove your wisdom teeth.
