Solana Beach Teens and College Students attention: Summer is the time to check your Wisdom Teeth

Solana Beach Dentist Solana Beach Orthodontics Wisdom teeth, also referred to as third molars, get their name by being the last teeth to come in during young adulthood, the time of life when you gain maturity or “wisdom.” Most people have most of their permanent teeth by age 13. Your wisdom teeth should come into your mouth between the ages of 17-21. Sometimes they do not have enough room to come in normally or are in the wrong position to come straight up. When that happens, your dentist may refer to them as impacted and they may have to be removed.

Not everyone’s teeth develop on the same schedule. That’s why it’s important to see your Solana Beach Smiles Dentist regularly so he or she can monitor the progress of your wisdom teeth. Every patient is unique, but in general, wisdom teeth may need to be removed when there is evidence of changes in the mouth such as:

pain

infection

cysts

tumors

damage to adjacent teeth

gum disease

tooth decay (if it is not possible or desirable to restore the tooth)

Your Solana Beach Dentist or specialist may also recommend removing your wisdom teeth to prevent problems or for other reasons, such as when removal is part of getting braces, treating gums or other dental procedures. Call us today at 858-481-7155

I have horrible teeth and have been around the block and back with dentists, trying many offices around Los Angeles and San Diego. Dentists come a dime a dozen but I try to avoid doing the trial and error thing with my teeth!

Dr. Jessy was highly recommended by a friend of mine so I went to see him for a consultation. First impressions are everything for me - beginning with how my first phone call is handled, stepping into the office for the first time, the front office staff, etc. Everyone I encountered was professional and courteous. When I had my consult with Dr. Jessy he was personable and professional but most importantly, I could tell he was experienced and knowledgeable.

Over the past two weeks I had 11 teeth worked on and I was really surprised by how gentle the process was. I'm accustomed to experiencing significant pain at the dentist and this was not the case at all. I definitely have confidence in Dr. Jessy and his office and highly recommend them!

I am so impressed with Dr. Sidhu and his staff. Check- ups, cleanings and more complex dental work are all performed with a professional and caring
approach. I feel very confident in their ability, and do not hesitate to recommend Dr. Sidhu. Thank you to Marlene too for the great cleanings!
