Syracuse Wisdom Teeth Specialist
Wisdom teeth are the upper and lower third molars at the very back of the mouth that are the last permanent teeth to emerge, usually between the “wizened” years of 17 and 21. They are useful teeth if they emerge without complication. Regretfully, wisdom teeth may suffer from serious complications for which you should phone TLC Dental Group, the home of “Gentle Dentistry,” for a “Gentle Dental” consultation. We are a leading Syracuse, NY specialist in wisdom teeth, impacted wisdom teeth, partially erupted wisdom teeth, and misaligned wisdom teeth treatment and extraction. In diagnosing and gently treating your wisdom tooth conditions we will draw on our years of experience in successfully addressing the wisdom teeth symptoms of our family of patients.
Wisdom Teeth Complications
- Wisdom tooth misalignment, a condition in which they fully emerge but are misaligned
- Wisdom tooth impaction, a condition in which they are submerged below the gum line in a vertical, horizontal, or angular position
- Wisdom tooth partial eruption, a condition in which they only partially emerge
Risks of Wisdom Teeth Complications
Serious dental problems may ensue from these conditions, including:
- tooth decay
- tooth infection
- dental cysts
- and damage to other teeth, gums, nerves, and jawbone.
Symptoms of Wisdom Teeth Complications
- Pain or jaw stiffness near an impacted wisdom tooth
- Ear pain
- Pain or irritation from a wisdom tooth coming in at an awkward angle and rubbing against your cheek, tongue, or top of the mouth
- Tooth decay or gum disease caused by difficult access for proper dental cleaning
