Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often pose several oral health issues. These teeth can become impacted or grow at odd angles, leading to pain, infection, and damage to neighboring teeth. By undergoing wisdom tooth extraction, you can:

1. Relieve pain and discomfort caused by impacted wisdom teeth

2. Prevent crowding and misalignment of teeth

3. Avoid the risk of infection and decay

Ideal Candidates for Wisdom Tooth Extraction

While not everyone needs their wisdom teeth extracted, it is recommended for individuals who experience:

1. Pain or discomfort in the back of the mouth

2. Swelling or infection around the wisdom tooth

3. Difficulty in cleaning the wisdom tooth area

    As always, I had the best doctor and superb services at Shifa Dental. I never felt the need to go to any other dentist after coming to this place a couple of years ago. Their attention to details is masterful and coupled with the care for their patients they show is truly wonderful. A big thank to all the people at Shifa Dental.
