Wisdom Teeth Diagnosis
name ( Dentist) will be able to determine whether or not you are a candidate for wisdom teeth removal during your dental examination. Today with the help of technology, name ( Dentist) can best diagnose the need for extraction with the use of panoramic and digital X-rays as well as identifying the tooth’s anatomy and its surrounding structures and how best to take on the procedure if required.
Dentists today recommend extracting potentially problematic wisdom teeth by the age of 18 as complications with the procedure increases as we age. For example, patients over the age of 35 would be at a higher risk that a younger candidate. Patients over the age of 50 experience even greater complications. As we age, the bone becomes fused to the teeth making them harder to extract and also risks numbness to the extraction site.
