For almost everyone in their late teens or early twenties, the time will come when wisdom teeth begin to erupt. If that time has finally arrived for someone in your home (or for you), our dentists and team can help. Call Citrus Smiles at 972-472-8862 for an appointment with our dentists for wisdom teeth removal in Murphy, Texas.
Commonly known as third molars, wisdom teeth are usually the last to come in, erupting in adolescence or early adulthood, hence the name “wisdom teeth.” Usually there is not enough room for these teeth to properly erupt, so they may erupt partially, at an incorrect angle or not at all. This can result in damage to your other teeth, cavities, infection or inflammation and orthodontic issues. Signs that your wisdom teeth are coming in may include tender or bleeding gums, swelling or pain. You may also experience a fever, problems with the mobility of your jaw or even bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth.
Our dentists and team will do everything possible to keep you comfortable during your visit and will provide you with aftercare instructions to help ensure proper healing. If you suspect that you need your wisdom teeth extracted, contact our office for your appointment with our dentists.
