Wisdom Tooth Removal—Eliminate Pain, Irritation and Over Crowding

Hutto Hippo Family Dental

Scientists believe wisdom teeth, which are actually a third set of molars, were essential when our ancestors’ diet consisted mostly of rough and coarse foods, including uncooked nuts meats and roots. But they’re no longer necessary to break down our food. In fact, there’s typically not enough room in the adult mouth for wisdom teeth to come in and function. As a result, the molars can often cause significant discomfort and can lead to gum irritation and even infection. At Hutto Hippo Family Dental, we take am approach that is different from most dentists. When wisdom teeth are presenting problems such as sore or infected gums, difficulty with oral hygiene or crowding other teeth, we’ll remove them with a minimal amount of discomfort to you. However, we don’t remove wisdom teeth that aren’t causing any dental distress.

 Why You Should Choose Hutto Hippo

A trip to the dentist is cause for anxiety for many patients. Too often, dental offices only elevate your fears, offering a somber environment where dental procedures are discussed in hushed tones. We believe in creating a different sort of atmosphere in our dental office. While we take your problems seriously and strive to provide the best and most effective care possible, we also believe that laughter is often the best medicine. A welcoming and relaxed atmosphere in our office  eliminates needless anxiety you often find in a dentist’s office. Don’t be surprised if you leave our office with a smile on your face!
