Wisdom Teeth Removal: Navigating the Path to a Healthy Smile

Dental Elements: Your Trusted Partner for Wisdom Teeth Removal in Downtown Denver

At Dental Elements, we understand the discomfort and anxiety associated with wisdom teeth, also known as third molars. Wisdom teeth often erupt late in life, causing pain, crowding, and potential damage to adjacent teeth. Wisdom teeth removal is a common dental procedure that can effectively alleviate these issues and promote long-term oral health. Our experienced dentists are dedicated to providing personalized care and utilizing advanced techniques to ensure a safe and comfortable wisdom teeth removal experience.

Understanding Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth removal, also known as third molar extraction, is a surgical procedure that involves removing one or more wisdom teeth. This procedure is often recommended when wisdom teeth:

  • Erupt incorrectly or become impacted: Wisdom teeth may erupt at an angle, causing pain and damage to adjacent teeth or the jawbone.

  • Cause overcrowding: Crowding of teeth can lead to misalignment, difficulty cleaning, and increased risk of gum disease.

  • Contribute to infection or damage: Wisdom teeth can harbor bacteria, leading to infection or damage to the surrounding bone and soft tissues.

Signs You May Need Wisdom Teeth Removal

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may need wisdom teeth removal:

  • Pain, discomfort, or swelling around the wisdom teeth

  • Bad breath or a persistent foul taste in your mouth

  • Difficulty chewing or biting

  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums around the wisdom teeth

  • Receding gums or visible bone loss

I had a long overdue deep cleaning, root canal/crown, AND fillings within a month. Dr. Thurman, Morgan, Kathy and staff were very attentive and kind with not ONLY the procedures and explanations but with checking up on me after the root canal. Also great at helping me figure out my insurance coverage and payments. Dental Elements is GREAT.
