Wisdom Teeth Consultations

A consultation with Dr. Steichen will help you figure out whether you need to schedule wisdom teeth removal in Albuquerque, NM. Some lucky patients have enough room for their wisdom teeth, but most of us need to have them removed before they start causing pain, decay, and changes to your bite. When wisdom teeth only partially erupt, the gums become puffy and inflamed and pockets can form that harbor harmful bacteria. If your wisdom teeth do not fit properly in your mouth, they may cause the rest of your teeth to shift, sometimes painfully. Orthodontics (braces) might be required to correct this if your wisdom teeth are not removed in a timely fashion.

Complications From Wisdom Teeth

Prevention is much simpler and healthier than correction. Schedule your wisdom teeth removal in Albuquerque, NM before you start experiencing any of these symptoms:

  • Tooth decay
  • Tooth pain
  • Shifting and overcrowded teeth
  • Painful gum inflammation and infection
