Without early third molar removal, your patients may experience problems. Early third molar removal minimizes surgical and post operative complications. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems if they are not removed. Cysts or tumors can develop and an infection above the partially erupted tooth can cause pain. Most patients do not have the room for third molars to function properly or fully erupt. If there is not enough room for the wisdom teeth to erupt, gum inflammation and/or tooth decay can occur since the area is difficult to keep clean.
According to the AAOMS, or the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, two thirds of patients who let their third molars come in on their own experienced damage and decay to the second molars.
Why Should Your Patients Opt for Early Wisdom Teeth Removal?
Western Surgical and Sedation offers focused sedation and practical exodontia courses that will benefit your patients and increase your bottom line.
Practice the Three P’s:
Predictable-Teenage patients can have third molars removed safely with minimal trauma. The best time for removal is when the roots of the teeth are ½ to ¾ developed. Complications, including nerve injuries are very rare with early wisdom teeth removal.
Profitable-Early wisdom teeth removal means different insurance coding. Early third molar removal can be coded for bony impactions. This makes early removal very profitable compared to a simple tooth extraction. Because most patients do not have room for wisdom teeth, early removal is justified by the majority of dental insurance companies.
Practice Building-When you take the Early Third Molar Removal Course from Western Surgical and Sedation, your patients will not have to be referred to an oral surgeon or other specialist. Adding early third molar removal to your list of services helps develop trust giving your patients even more reason to come back and refer family and friends.
