Be Wise About Your Wisdom Teeth, Grapevine

Be Wise About Your Wisdom Teeth, Grapevine

Hi, I’m Dr. Scott Mason, and today we will be discussing the often misunderstood subject of wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth are sometimes called the third molars because they are even farther back in the mouth than the two sets of regular molars we all have. These four teeth usually erupt when a person is eighteen or nineteen.

Many dentists in the Colleyville, Southlake, and Grapevine area recommend that wisdom teeth be removed to prevent misplacement in the mouth.

If a wisdom tooth doesn’t fully erupt, it may cause an opening in the gums that can attract bacteria and become infected. Some wisdom teeth are so misplaced that they can actually cause problems with the jaw bone. Both of these conditions can cause severe pain.

If you are in the Grapevine area and are wondering if your wisdom teeth need to be removed, call us today at 817-481-4717 to schedule an appointment. We can assess the condition and placement of your wisdom teeth and discuss a treatment plan.

We can also answer any questions you have about smile makeovers. Because there are so many quick and effective cosmetic dentistry procedures available, such as invisible braces, veneers, teeth whitening, and dental implants, anyone in Grapevine can have a perfect smile. I love giving my Grapevine patients the smiles they’ve always wanted.
