Wisdom Teeth Extraction: Check it off your Summer To-Do List Now!
As summer break winds down, parents are furiously checking things off their to-lists in anticipation of the upcoming school year. But one thing that rarely makes that list is wisdom teeth extraction for teenaged-children. Dr. Hudson recommends adding this to your family’s summer to-do list to avoid having to squeeze it in during the school year if your teen’s wisdom teeth become a problem.
Wisdom teeth extraction can be an intimidating procedure, but having the opportunity to schedule it before they cause any real pain or discomfort helps you and your child stay ahead of the curve. But because wisdom teeth may not present an immediate problem upon their eruption, many parents assume it’s safe to postpone the procedure. However, those who choose to go this route may find that delaying extraction can end up being more stressful in the long run. This is especially true for teens who are preparing to leave for college. The last thing a parent wants is a frantic call or text from their child who is away from home at school and in pain. The task of trying to coordinate finding an out-of-town dentist or oral surgeon for your child can be stressful for many parents, and relying on Google reviews does little to put their mind at ease. Scheduling wisdom teeth extractions during summer break means that your child will be seen by your preferred oral health care professional, someone you and your family know and trust. It also guarantees that your child can recuperate from the procedure in the comfort of their own home instead of a noisy dorm hall.
With the end of summer quickly approaching, scheduling wisdom teeth removal for your age-appropriate children should certainly be on your do-to list. If you haven’t crossed it off the list, give us a call at 888-724-7986 to schedule an appointment.
