Did you know, wisdom teeth can eventually cause problems with your oral health, jaw bone, gums, other teeth, and teeth alignment in your mouth? Well, it’s true! In many cases, having your wisdom teeth removed can save you from a plethora of oral health problems down the road. That is why our team of professionals at Midwest Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is happy to talk to you about the importance of having your wisdom teeth removed.

Dr. Greg Heuler, Dr. Noah Sandler, and Dr. Diana Lyu are all trained experts when it comes to oral and maxillofacial surgery, which includes wisdom teeth removal. Because these third molars, also known as wisdom teeth, come in later in life, there is often not enough room for them to grow in properly, resulting in painful collisions with other teeth or poor alignment situations.

If there is not sufficient room for your wisdom teeth to grow, they can become impacted, which means they cannot fully break through the gum tissue or jawbone, or grow in at very awkward angles, which can damage your neighboring teeth, disturb your alignment, cause infections in the gums, increase the risk of the formation of cysts, and even risk damage to your jaw bone. That is why having them removed could keep your smile healthy and far from these complications as possible.

If you are thinking of removing your wisdom teeth or would like to talk to a professional about the process and if it is right for you, please call us today at 952-226-7940 to set up an appointment. Our friendly staff is happy to help you in any way we can.
