Our oral surgeon may recommend wisdom teeth removal to help keep your mouth and smile healthy. Because the wisdom teeth are the final teeth to erupt, there is often not enough space to accommodate them. This may lead to problems such as infection and tooth damage, as well as tooth misalignment. They can even constitute a dental emergency when left unaddressed for too long. To find out more about wisdom teeth removal in Arlington and Ashburn, Virginia, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Zaher Aymach, call Grace TMJ and Urgent Dental Care Inc today at 703-469-7435.

Since the smile often does not have enough room for wisdom teeth, these third molars may grow in at an angle or not be able to break through the jawbone or gum tissues. The latter condition is known as impacted teeth. Wisdom teeth that do not grow in properly may result in the following:

  • Interference with the patient’s smile alignment or orthodontic treatment
  • Damage to the surrounding teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Gum infection or inflammation
  • Cyst formation
  • Jawbone damage

Our oral surgeon and team want to protect our patients from experiencing the above conditions. During your consultation, our oral surgeon will check the alignment and positions of your natural teeth and wisdom teeth to see if wisdom teeth removal would be the best action to keep your smile healthy. We will help make sure that you are comfortable during your wisdom teeth removal, and our oral surgeon will ensure the process is as painless as possible.

If you think you may require wisdom teeth removal, call us today. We will schedule you an appointment.
