When we think of wisdom teeth, we think of sitting in a dental chair, cringing in pain. We have all heard horror stories surrounding these famous teeth. Some of us dread the diagnosis from our dentist. We enter the dental office for our annual checkup and pray that we can go another year without undergoing this infamous extraction.
However, prior to allowing ourselves to experience these feelings of anxiety we must ask ourselves, what exactly are wisdom teeth? In fact, when wisdom teeth are in their proper position and alignment they can be an asset to you. However, they are often misaligned throughout time and can even erupt through the skin and/or gum. Those of who are lucky, only experience a partial eruption, if any at all. The harm in leaving this situation untreated is that they can damage the surrounding teeth and gum and even leave you prone to an oral infection and other complications.
The key to providing as much comfort as possible during this process is visiting an experienced dentist who has done many of these procedures in the past. At Finley Dentistry, Dr. Finley will work with you as a team in order to ensure as little pain and discomfort as possible. Additionally, he can review the many benefits to having your wisdom teeth removed and the complications which they may cause later down the road. Once you have agreed upon a wisdom removal plan that you are both comfortable with, you can proceed.

3D Dental X-Rays Provide More Information and Help You Make Better Decisions
The Planmeca ProMax® 3D Classic unit is designed to obtain complete information on your patient’s anatomy in the minutest detail. This intelligent and multipurpose X-ray unit provides digital panoramic, cephalometric and 3D imaging as well as 3D photos and 3D model scans.
This completely state of the art equipment provides a wealth of information to Dr. Finley. The patients’ entire dentition area in the minutest detail is digitally recorded and that data is available in 360 degree 3D views.
Sounds more like Star Trek than a local dentist’s office?
The technology is available and Dr. Finley insists on using the latest equipment available for the patients’ benefit.
Planmeca is the first company to combine three different types of 3D data in one machine – a Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) image, 3D face photo and 3D model scan are one 3D image.
The result is that the Planmeca ProMax® 3D Classic uses hardware and software to create a virtual patient for Dr Finley’s reference. This is of great value to both dentist and patient as the exact condition of the patient’s teeth is fully known.
It is an old scientific view that an exact and accurate statement of the problem begs the solution.
Finley Dentistry uses this advanced 3D x-ray to precisely duplicate the state of the patient’s teeth so that the most informed recommendations and treatments can be delivered to the patient.
