Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the third molars in the very back of your mouth. They don’t always need to be removed, but they can cause problems if they are not growing in properly. We provide advanced state-of-the-art oral surgery and wisdom teeth removal. If you’re struggling with your wisdom teeth, please call us for a free consultation.
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars. They come in anywhere between the ages of 15 to 25 and are known to cause issues with many patients’ oral health. We can visually examine your wisdom teeth (if they have already erupted) or use X-ray imaging to assess if your wisdom teeth need to be removed.
Having your wisdom teeth extracted may seem like a rite of passage, but that’s not always the case. Depending on the shape of your mouth, size of teeth, and the position of your third molars, a wisdom teeth removal procedure is determined on a case-by-case basis.
Proactive wisdom tooth removal can help to reduce the risk of problems like:
• Crowded teeth
• TMJ problems
• Irregular tooth wear
• Tooth decay
• Gum disease
• Damage to adjacent teeth
Due to their position in the bone and against adjacent teeth, wisdom teeth can harm the healthy teeth next to them. Additionally, third molars are quite difficult to keep clean. So even if you have generally good oral hygiene, it’s possible that your wisdom teeth may develop an infection. Instead of treating them with gum infection therapy or a filling, it’s typically the standard of care to have the teeth removed for proactive purposes.
