What do you know about your wisdom teeth? If you are like many who know very little about them, then you are not alone. That is why, our team here at the dental practice of Ryan D. Sparks, DMD in Corvallis, Oregon, is happy to talk to you about your wisdom teeth, and how to care for them.

Your smile goes through many various stages in your life. You start off with no teeth, then grow baby teeth, which is followed by your permanent teeth. In most people, wisdom teeth are a new stage your smile endures. Wisdom teeth, when they start to grow in, can cause some pain and discomfort, which is why it’s important to see your dentist, Dr. Ryan D. Sparks as soon as you can.

Sometimes, your wisdom teeth can grow in beautifully, while other times, they may not have room enough to grow, which causes serious problems for your teeth. In some cases, it is usually ideal to have your wisdom teeth removed in order to keep your teeth in their healthy, ideal alignment. It can also be extremely difficult to brush or floss your back wisdom teeth, making a great place for cavities to develop and grow. That is why it is so crucial to talk to your dentist, so you know which option is best for you.

If you think you are struggling with wisdom teeth appearing incorrectly or would like to come in for an evaluation, please call us today at 541-754-9322 to set up an appointment. Our friendly and professional team of trained experts are happy to help you and your smile in any way we can.
