Are you worried about your wisdom teeth? Schedule a dental exam with Galleria of Smiles, and one of our talented dentists, Dr. M. Emami or Dr. Justin Emami, can tell you everything you need to know about your wisdom teeth and whether wisdom teeth removal is necessary. We have two convenient locations, Tulsa, OK and Sand Springs, OK.
Wisdom teeth tend to come in during your late teens or early 20s, so if it’s your son or daughter you’re concerned about, our Sand Springs, OK location is very family-focused. Dr. M. Emami welcomes patients of all ages!
Why Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Not everyone has to have their wisdom teeth removed, but if you do, it will likely be because:
- They’re causing you pain or discomfort
- They’re impacted and are coming in under your other teeth
- They’re coming in at an unattractive or painful angle
- They’ve only partially erupted, leaving your gums susceptible to bacteria
- There’s not enough room along your jaw for an additional set of molars
No matter the reason, Galleria of Smiles can remove your wisdom teeth and protect the beauty of your smile. Your discomfort will be managed throughout your procedure with local anesthesia, and if desired, dental sedation. We’ll send you home with instructions for proper aftercare.
At your six-month dental exam, we’ll be able to take 3-D X-rays and let you know what state your wisdom teeth are in. You could need as many as four wisdom teeth removed. We are able to do both simple and complicated wisdom teeth removals at our offices, so you won’t have to be referred out to a specialist.
