Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth Extraction Explained

Having your wisdom teeth removed is a common procedure, but one that requires surgery and anesthesia. We pride ourselves in making sure you get the best care and take every step necessary to make sure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop, and usually erupt in the late teen years. There is often inadequate room for eruption and wisdom teeth often become impacted. Impacted teeth often become infected, decayed, and lead to periodontal disease.

If removal of the wisdom teeth is found necessary, the procedure is recommended in the late teenage years, before the roots are completely formed. Surgical procedures, in general, are better tolerated when one is young and healthy, and the gum tissues tend to heal better and more predictably when young. Most people experience minor disruption of their normal routines and some time off from work or school is usually required.
