Wisdom Tooth Extractions – Alexandria, IN
How We Stop
Problematic Wisdom Teeth
When wisdom teeth erupt, they can easily cause harm to surrounding teeth and oral structures. In fact, their arrival can result in an oral infection if they become trapped underneath gum tissue or neighboring teeth. While not all wisdom teeth require removal, it’s rare that the mouth is large enough to accommodate them, especially when all four wisdom teeth erupt. Dr. Martinez is experienced in many kinds of tooth extractions, including wisdom teeth, so don’t put off your treatment if you start to notice discomfort from the back of your mouth. Call our dental office to schedule wisdom tooth extractions in Alexandria, IN!

Do You Need a Wisdom Tooth Extracted?
If you’re (or your child is) between the ages of 18 and 25, then the wisdom teeth are likely going to erupt within that time period. If you start to notice pain or soreness in the back of your mouth, check the back of your mouth in the bathroom mirror. In some cases, your wisdom tooth may be visible during its eruption. However, if the tooth is trapped underneath the gum tissue, you should schedule an appointment with our dental office as soon as possible in order to avoid complications. Furthermore, if you experience a high fever or notice pimple-like bumps on your gum tissue, it means an infection has already developed.
