Our dentists can provide wisdom teeth extractions in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, as a way of preventing more serious oral health problems. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt and because of this, there is often insufficient space for them. Removing your wisdom teeth can help you avoid additional dental issues, such as:
- Impacted teeth (teeth which are unable to break through the gums and jawbone)
- Changes to the alignment of your teeth
- Damage to neighboring teeth
- Tooth decay, infection and inflammation
- The formation of cysts
- Damage to the jawbone
During an initial consultation at Louisiana Dental Center, we will closely examine your mouth, dentition and the position of your wisdom teeth. This helps us determine whether wisdom teeth removal is the best option for you. If it is, we can begin carefully planning your treatment and the extraction procedure to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. You will also be provided with post-operative instructions explaining how to care for your mouth after extraction so you can recover without complications.
