Wisdom teeth are a very common cause of toothaches. At our dental practice, Dr. Geoffrey Edmunds, patients are able to get wisdom tooth extraction in Albany NY.
When a patient comes to our dental practice with tooth pain, they will be seen by our expert dentist, Dr. Geoffrey B. Edmunds. Our dentist will be able to definitively determine the exact cause of the tooth pain. If the problem is caused by wisdom teeth, it is not surprising. This is because a large percentage of people develop problems with their wisdom teeth. When a person has problems with wisdom teeth, our dentist will usually recommend that a tooth extraction in Albany NY procedure is performed for you. Wisdom teeth do not need to be replaced with dental implants or other tooth replacement methods. This is because the wisdom teeth are not needed for chewing, or for clear speech. Wisdom teeth experience many problems when trying to erupt because they are the last teeth in the mouth to come in. For this reason, there is often little or no room left for wisdom teeth in the mouth. This causes wisdom teeth to have to try to erupt in a different manner. Sometimes wisdom teeth will end up coming in sideways, or coming in in the improper location. This means that they will push other permanent teeth out of position, and threaten to disrupt a beautiful smile. Wisdom teeth can also become infected and become a great source of tooth pain. Sometimes, a wisdom tooth will start to erupt, and then will stop partway. This leaves a gap between the tooth and the gums, which becomes an excellent location for materials to gather and infection to form.
If you are experiencing pain from your wisdom teeth, and need to have your wisdom teeth extracted, we urge you to contact our dentist regarding having a tooth extraction in Albany NY.
