All About Wisdom Teeth

Your wisdom teeth usually appear in your upper, lower, or both upper and lower parts of your jaw. Wisdom teeth that develop correctly usually don’t require removal. However, if your wisdom teeth don’t develop correctly, they can begin to affect the rest of your teeth. Underdeveloped wisdom teeth can cause issues like:

  • Tooth Decay
  • Tooth Infections
  • Teeth Shifting
  • Over crowding of Teeth
  • Pain or swelling

Removal Process:
Dr. Parnaik will examine your teeth to determine what the best plan is best for your wisdom teeth. At Dental Creations, we value our patients and their oral health and work with you to maintain the health of your teeth. If Dr. Parnaik determines that you need your wisdom teeth removed, then she may need to perform a tooth extraction. We use sedation dentistry to make sure our patients are relaxed and comfortable during their procedure. Once your wisdom teeth are removed, it is important to closely follow your after care instructions to ensure your teeth heal properly.

Preventive Care:
Dr. Parnaik encourages patients to visit our Medford dental office for routine preventive care visits at least twice a year to have their teeth properly examined. We take a comprehensive approach to preventive care dentistry. Our unique examinations and state of the art technology help us detect complex dental issues and offer treatments to help improve your smile. During these visits, we can determine if you are experiencing any dental issues like gum disease and tooth decay and work with you to develop a plan.
