When we enter a time period that is often easiest for patients to schedule care, we like to give several reminders. We know that scheduling a visit for wisdom teeth removal is not necessarily the first thing that springs to mind when you’re trying to enjoy summer. However, it can certainly be something you’ll be sorry you missed once the fall season rolls around and your schedule is packed once more! Allow us to offer up some motivating details regarding removing third molars and why calling us right now to get your visit set up might be the best choice.
Do You Have Children?
If you have children, there are a couple reasons choosing this moment to call us to schedule wisdom teeth removal might be ideal. First, it depends on who needs their third molars removed. If it’s your teen (or young adult), summer means vacation from school and most major commitments, so there’s time for the procedure and time to heal and relax. If you are in need of removal, even if you must take time away from work, you are free of driving kids to and from school, sporting events, and more – less on your plate means taking care of this detail is much less challenging!
How Are Those Teeth?
When it comes down to third molars that require removal, any time is a good time for wisdom teeth removal (the sooner the better, of course). Why would we say such as thing? Consider the following consequences of neglecting these teeth that, without immediate removal, may wreak havoc on your oral health:
- Wisdom teeth that need to be removed can cause discomfort
- Impacted wisdom teeth may lead to infection or can contribute to the development of a cyst
- Wisdom teeth can grow in the direction of existing teeth, creating a significant threat of damage
- Erupted teeth can prove extremely difficult to care for, which may result in decay and additional oral health problems
