Many people feel conflicted about the option to remove your wisdom teeth. Our dentist, Dr. Dickson Ufomata with Leestown Dental Center in Lexington, Kentucky, understands the dilemma, which is why we are happy to talk to you about the importance of having them removed.

Wisdom teeth are common in many people and create an alignment issue among their teeth. In most cases, the wisdom teeth do not have sufficient room to fit with the other teeth. As a result, they become impacted or cause pain and misalignment issues in your smile. Wisdom teeth are known for producing problems with your oral health. Even if they do not bother you when they first appear, they may begin to cause problems or pain down the road.

Some of the most common complications that wisdom teeth can produce include infections, crowding or damaging your other teeth, and severe decay that can occur because they are hard to reach. If your dentist suggests the removal of your wisdom teeth, that is because the removal of them could help your smile in the long run.

If you have questions about your wisdom teeth, or wonder if removing them is best for you, please call 859-232-8883 today to set up a consultation. Our staff is happy to answer any questions you may have about your wisdom teeth.
