Everyone needs dental care, and aside from routine examinations and check ups, some individuals, if not all of them, need some kind of dental work at one point or another in their lives.

Some people need to have teeth removed because they are getting ready to undergo some kind of orthodontic work, because they have experience significant tooth decay and the tooth itself cannot be salvaged, or because a tooth has been damaged beyond repair. In other cases, impacted teeth need to be removed for the begin to affect the other teeth in your mouth. This often happens with wisdom teeth. For the most part, humans no longer really need to use wisdom teeth which were once used to grind certain types of food. As the human brain grew slowly over time, the human jaw became smaller in order to accommodate for the growing size of the brain. As a result, there became a much smaller amount of space available for certain teeth, namely wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are known by this name because they generally developed during the ages between 18 and 21, if not later on in life. Wisdom teeth can often come in impacted or crooked because of this change in the size of the average human jaw. As impacted teeth grow and develop, they can severely affect the teeth that you already have, causing severe dental crowding and intensive oral pain. In this case, you will need to have your teeth removed, so if you need any Manhattan teeth extractions, then our dentist Elliott Ostro DMD can help. The procedure used to remove wisdom teeth will differ depending on the stage of development that your teeth are currently in. Some wisdom teeth may be removed before they even erupt from the gums, which is preferable when it comes to impacted wisdom teeth, but even individuals whose wisdom teeth are not crooked might need to have them removed in order to prevent the likelihood of developing tooth decay or gum disease.

Taking care of your dental health is essential, and sometimes in order to do so you need to remove some of your teeth. With the help of our expert dentist Elliott Ostro DMD you can get any Manhattan teeth extractions that you need in order to improve your overall oral health.

There are many different reasons as to why someone may need oral surgery.

If you are in need of wisdom teeth removal in Manhattan, then Elliott Ostro DMD Gillen can help you get the comprehensive care that really need.

Wisdom teeth are the last of your teeth to develop and emerge from your gums. Wisdom teeth are typically called wisdom teeth because they tend to develop when you are already an adult, typically between the ages of 18 and 21 though some people may get their wisdom teeth earlier or later than those average ages as well. Part of the importance of routine dental exams and checkups is to keep tabs on your overall dental development. With the help of X-rays, dentists can monitor the way in which your teeth are developing and can tell whether there may be any future issues. Many people develop impacted wisdom teeth, which means that they do not come in straight. Mostly, impacted wisdom teeth grow towards the rest of your teeth instead of straight up which can cause a great deal of issues. This can cause dental crowding and immense dental pain as well.
