DENTAL FUN FACTS

Did you know. . . .

Brushing twice a day wears out your toothbrush?
The American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every 3 months, or sooner, if the bristles become frayed. Look for toothbrushes that display the ADA symbol to insure safety and effectiveness.

ORAL SURGERY

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to erupt. They are located at the very back of the mouth near the angle of the jaw. They usually erupt between the age of 16 and 25, when a person is considered older and “wiser”. Wisdom teeth that are properly positioned usually do not cause problems. However, problems can develop that require their removal.

When the dental arch is not large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, they may have a difficult time erupting, thus leading to infection, damage to nearby teeth and roots as well as difficulty with proper cleaning. Wisdom teeth can also grow in sideways, emerge only part way through the gum or remain trapped beneath the gum and bone.

Symptoms that may indicate your wisdom teeth need to be removed include:
  • Pain or jaw discomfort.
  • Irritated tissue toward the back of your mouth.
  • An infection near or around the tooth.
  • Crowding or misalignment of other teeth.
  • Tooth decay or gum disease in the area surrounding the tooth.

The two most common reasons for removing the wisdom teeth is the crowding of the other teeth or tooth decay. Dr. Brymer will examine your x-rays, your teeth and your gums to determine and alert you if there are any problems with your wisdom teeth. Once the decision has been made to remove your wisdom teeth, Dr. Brymer will perform the procedure under local anesthesia in our office.
