San Franciscans aren’t usually procrastinators. They are go-getters. But with all that has been going on during the pandemic, many folks have put off their dental needs. That includes wisdom teeth removal in San Francisco, Calfornia. But don’t put it off any longer. Call us today and let Dr. Rabinovich inspect your wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth are your third molars and they are the last to erupt in your mouth. Many people wonder why they are called wisdom teeth, and the reason is that they generally don’t arrive until your mid-teens, or sometimes even later, by which age you are deemed to have acquired some wisdom. (Some parents may be forgiven for questioning that, but nonetheless, that is the case!).
Furthermore, the wise thing to do is to get your wisdom teeth checked anyway, even if they are not causing pain at present. This is because left to themselves, they can do a lot of damage. Sometimes they have enough space to erupt and perform like the rest of your teeth, but this is rare. In most cases, they do not have enough space in which to grow, and they will do all sorts of things to try and find their way. This means that they can partially erupt from the gum, grow sideways, and worse still, push other teeth out of alignment as they try to erupt.
A Good Reason To Have Your Wisdom Teeth Checked By A Specialist
This is a very good reason for having your wisdom teeth checked by a specialist, even though they may not be causing you any pain at the moment. Dr. Rabinovich can take a scan of your jaw and wisdom teeth and be able to see if they are going to cause problems, even if only some months down the line. It is better to have wisdom teeth removal in San Francisco, California, before they start to cause any serious problem, rather than waiting until they do. It also decreases any surgical risk involved with the procedure.
When they are only partially erupted, the opening around the teeth allows bacteria to grow and this will cause a gum infection resulting in swelling, pain, and illness. In the worst-case scenario, cysts or tumors can form around the impacted wisdom teeth which can destroy the jawbone and healthy teeth.
So if you have been putting off wisdom teeth removal in San Francisco, California, don’t leave it any longer. It is just not worth it.
