Wisdom Teeth Removal in Albuquerque

At TruCare Dental, our general dentists can perform comfortable wisdom teeth removals for patients who are experiencing pain, teeth crowding, and other dental issues due to impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth.  We focus on our patient’s comfort which is why we offer dental sedation to help reduce any anxiety you might feel.

If wisdom teeth removal does not occur when your wisdom teeth become impacted, you may develop gum tenderness, swelling, or even severe pain. Impacted wisdom teeth are susceptible to tooth decay, recurring infections, and even gum disease because they are very hard to clean. Having the wisdom tooth extraction procedure can be much easier in the long run than the consequences of not having it done!

What Problems Can Happen Due To Wisdom Teeth?

  • Wisdom teeth may become impacted b/c your jaw is not large enough for the wisdom teeth and they cannot break through your gums.
  • The eruption process is slow for wisdom teeth and can cause a large amount of tooth pain or a toothache.
  • When wisdom teeth erupt, many times they create a pocket in the gums that can be difficult to clean and lead to a gum infection and periodontal abscess.

If you think you need your wisdom teeth pulled or any other tooth extracted, call our Albuquerque dentist office today!
