Third Molar Extractions in Dripping Springs, TX
Third molars, or “wisdom teeth,” usually wait until we are in our late teens or early twenties to make their unwelcome appearance. Most mouths are too small to accommodate four more molars. These late-growing teeth might try to erupt through your gums while other teeth are in the way.
If you are among the millions whose wisdom teeth could cause problems, you probably should have them removed. If they do erupt, they are almost impossible to keep clean, leading to decay and gum inflammation. If these teeth remain under the gums and bone, they can cause cysts and pain to develop as they put pressure on the other teeth and jaws.
Dr. Tristan and his team can remove third molars right in their office. Using the latest technology, Dr. Tristan provides sedation and surgical techniques that provide minimum discomfort and quick recovery time.
If you are having pain in the back of your mouth or jaws, that might be a sign that your third molars need to be removed. Call TORC Dental today at (512) 607-6500 to schedule an evaluation and consultation.
