Oral Surgery Rome GA: Wisdom Teeth, Sedation ORAL SURGEON Rome GA, Mount Berry GA, Lindale
Rome DENTAL PATIENT You are a Dentist in Rome GA. Tell me something. Do wisdom teeth make
a person have more wisdom? ORAL SURGEON Rome GA This is a joke, right?
Rome DENTAL PATIENT More like a wish. I’ll do anything to be smarter. DENTIST Rome GA
Talking to me will make you smarter. Rome DENTAL PATIENT Nice one.
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA Wisdom teeth don’t make you smarter. But knowing about wisdom
teeth will. Rome DENTAL PATIENT Okay, I’ll go with that.
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA Wisdom teeth usually appear during somebody’s later teens or
early twenties. They are the last set of molars to come in.
Rome DENTAL PATIENT So they saved the best for last?
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA Not always. There’s often a problem with wisdom teeth.
Rome DENTAL PATIENT I knew it. There is such a thing as too much wisdom.
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA Actually - the problem is too little space. There often just isn’t
enough room for these teeth. They come in misaligned. They might be angled inwardly
or outwardly. Or lean toward or away from the adjacent set of molars. They can be crowding
the other teeth, and end up damaging those teeth, the jawbone, and even the nerves.
Rome DENTAL PATIENT That’s really nervy of them.
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA If they lean toward the adjacent teeth, they can cause decay since
there isn’t enough room to keep the area clean.
Rome DENTAL PATIENT Not good. ORAL SURGEON Rome GA All of this may also
lead to periodontal disease and also can make your existing teeth crooked.
Rome DENTAL PATIENT Really not good. ORAL SURGEON Rome GA Of course, sometimes
the wisdom teeth never fully come out, usually because of inadequate space.
Rome DENTAL PATIENT That’s good, right? ORAL SURGEON Rome GA Not good. This creates
a different problem. They stay trapped in the soft tissue. Teeth partly or fully trapped
in this soft tissue or jawbone are called impacted.
Rome DENTAL PATIENT Impacted doesn’t sound like something I want.
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA I would think not. For one thing, if partly exposed, it allows for
bacteria to enter around the tooth and cause an infection. Those teeth are also more likely
to suffer tooth decay because they’re harder to keep clean.
Rome DENTAL PATIENT But if you can’t really see the wisdom teeth - for example they may
not be out or fully out - how do you know there’s a problem?
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA Your dentist will likely take X-rays to make sure you have wisdom teeth,
and determine how the alignment is looking. The dentist might also have you examined by
an oral surgeon. Rome DENTAL PATIENT Oral surgeon. I don’t
like the sound of that. Sometimes they take out wisdom teeth, right?
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA It’s actually fairly common. They might choose to remove the wisdom
teeth even before they fully become a problem. Rome DENTAL PATIENT Aren’t we getting a
little ahead of ourselves if we remove the wisdom teeth before they become a problem?
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA Not really. Wisdom teeth are actually easier to remove when someone
is young, since the teeth roots are not fully formed and the bone isn’t as dense.
Rome DENTAL PATIENT It still sounds a little scary.
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA Some people feel scared because the teeth are all the way in the back.
But really most fear about removing wisdom teeth comes from years ago when I admit, methods
to remove teeth were pretty primitive. Rome DENTAL PATIENT And today -- removing
teeth is not as scary? ORAL SURGEON Rome GA Dental technology has
advanced tremendously over the years. With modern techniques and anesthetics, along with
sedation therapy, a fully erupted wisdom tooth can be removed as easily as any other tooth.
Rome DENTAL PATIENT That’s great news. But if the wisdom tooth isn’t out yet?
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA It will be a bit more involved. In that case, the tooth may be removed
in small sections. In the hands of a good dentist, removing a wisdom tooth is not a
problem. If you’re still worried, the dentist can offer you some sedation to deal with the
anxiety. Rome DENTAL PATIENT How fast can someone be
back at work or school after such a surgery?. ORAL SURGEON Rome GA We usually suggest the
person to take the rest of the day off ,sometimes the next day as well. But with proper treatment,
there is no major down time, or discomfort after the operation
Rome DENTAL PATIENT So bottom line. Keeping the wisdom tooth doesn’t make me smarter.
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA No. You are smarter to remove the wisdom tooth if it is a problem.
Rome DENTAL PATIENT That was clever turning of words.
ORAL SURGEON Rome GA I do what I can. Rome DENTAL PATIENT I like to keep my visit
to the dentist regular so that I stay informed about my oral health. If you have not visited
your Dentist for a while, call your local dentist in Rome GA and get your teeth examination.
Prevention is always better and cheaper than cure.
