Wisdom Tooth Removal

Healthy Smile ~ Healthy Life!

When your wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, begin to erupt, they may cause problems for your oral health, such as cysts, gum disease, cavities, tumors, and crowding and misalignment of your teeth. Dr. Michael McBride offers wisdom teeth removals to help you avoid these and other problems, and to keep your smile healthy and beautiful.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Our team at McBride Dental can prevent cysts, gum disease, cavities, tumors, and other problems when we provide wisdom teeth removal. The wisdom teeth often cause problems because they usually do not fit in the mouth, which is why our dentist offers this service. Call Dr. Michael McBride if you would like to learn more about wisdom teeth removal in San Marcos, California.

The third molars, which are commonly called the wisdom teeth, are typically the last teeth to come in. Because they are the last to erupt, there is often not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in as they should. When there is not sufficient space for the wisdom teeth, they may become impacted (unable to fully break through the gum tissues and jawbone), or they may grow in at an incorrect angle. Wisdom teeth that do not erupt as they should can lead to several dental problems, such as:

  • Disturbing the natural tooth alignment or orthodontic treatment
  • Damage to the neighboring teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Infection and inflammation in the gums and other tissues
  • The formation of cysts
  • Damage to the jawbone

Our dentist may recommend wisdom teeth removal to avoid these serious complications and to keep your smile healthy. Also, we will carefully evaluate your smile, including the positioning of your teeth and wisdom teeth, to determine whether your smile would benefit from wisdom teeth removal. Then, our dental team will ensure that your wisdom teeth removal treatment is as painless and comfortable as possible.
