Wisdom Teeth in Livermore, CA

Is It Time to Have Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Extraction is as Easy as Visiting Our General Dentist

Don't Put Treatment Off

If your wisdom teeth are causing you pain or your teeth to crowd, they come in crooked, or your mouth simply does not have enough room for the extra teeth, Dr. Richard Howes may recommend removing them to save the health and beauty of your smile. Between appointments, the following may indicate it is time to talk to us about extraction. We offer a CAT scan (CBCT) which is now state of the art for evaluation of wisdom teeth and other complicated procedures which is available at our office.

Signs and Symptoms You May Need an Extraction

  • Pain Near the Impacted Tooth
  • Jaw Tightness
  • Bad Breath or Unpleasant Taste

Signs and Symptoms of an Infection

  • Swollen Lymph Glands from Infection
  • Difficulty Chewing
  • Redness and Swelling

Save Money & Your Teeth Down the Road

Removing your wisdom teeth in a timely manner can prevent complications down the road. Without addressing the issue, infection can spread, or your teeth can shift and alter your smile, which may require cosmetic correction.

On a case-by-case basis, we determine the best treatment plan for your needs.

No matter what your treatment plan entails, you can relax knowing you will go through the procedure in our general dentist’s office right here at Smiles by Design.
