Prevent Future Dental Problems with Wisdom Teeth Removal
Having your wisdom teeth removed is almost a rite of passage for some people. Because these teeth remain underneath the gums until late teens or early 20′s, many people choose to have the teeth removed before they can cause any problems with the alignment of the existing teeth. If you’ve invested money for orthodontic treatments to straighten the teeth, you don’t want the emergence of wisdom teeth to ruin the straight alignment. For experienced wisdom teeth removal, Overlake Dental’s Bellevue dentistry office can schedule you an appointment for a pre-surgery assessment and extraction.
Before you schedule the removal, Dr. Lee will take X-rays to determine the current positioning of your wisdom teeth and decide on the right time for a removal. Now is the perfect time to ask all of your questions and insure that you understand the procedure. The office is fully equipped to handle all forms of dental surgery and checkups, specializing in cosmetic and family dentistry. The office staff is happy to sit with you and go over your questions and concerns. We can also explain the costs of the procedure and explain how our office processes health insurance. We believe that you’ll feel confident with the capabilities of our office and of Dr. Lee.
Anesthesia Services Offered at Our Office
Dr. Lee uses general or local anesthesia when performing a wisdom teeth removal. Our Bellevue dentistry office will monitor your vital signs during the surgery and insure that you remain safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. Wisdom teeth removal isn’t a mandatory procedure, but it can help prevent decay, infection, and misalignment of the teeth. You don’t have to wait until your teeth begin emerging to schedule a removal. Dr. Lee can use diagnostic tools like x-rays to determine if you’re a candidate for an extraction, even if the teeth are not breaking the surface of the gum. Call our office to discuss your options. We’re dedicated to providing premier dental services for families and individuals.
