Oral surgery is a big deal and it can be quite serious. This kind of dental care is needed in different situations, but one of the most common reasons for oral surgery is wisdom tooth removal. Many people have issues with the way that their wisdom teeth develop, leading to the need to remove them before any other dental trauma can occur. Here at Browns Mills Dental Center we can provide patients with the McGuire extractions they need to prevent further dental issues and to resolve all problems pertaining to wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth are not really needed any more. As humans have evolved and the brain has gotten bigger, the human jaw has gradually grown smaller to accommodate these changes, leaving little room for the last molars. Wisdom teeth are the last molars that a person develops and they are located at the very back of the mouth. They are generally referred to as wisdom teeth because they tend to develop when a person is already an adult, around the ages of 18 to 21 or so. Some people develop these teeth earlier while others may develop them later, but depending on the movement, placement and direction of these teeth, they may need to be removed at one point. Because of the tight quarters, many people develop impacted wisdom teeth that develop towards other teeth, which could cause dental crowding and trauma. Others may develop wisdom teeth fully, but have a difficult time cleaning them because they are so far back in the mouth. Here at Browns Mills Dental Center we can perform McGuire extractions in either scenario to ensure that dental health is preserved and restored.
For people with impacted wisdom teeth, the teeth are removed before they can cause any damage, whereas un-impacted wisdom teeth can be more easily removed once they have fully developed and broken through the gums.
