The wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt and rarely have enough space to come in without causing problems for your other teeth and your overall oral health. In many cases, wisdom teeth become impacted and cannot erupt properly, or they come in at an unusual angle. Common problems that occur when the wisdom teeth begin to erupt include:
Our dentist may recommend removing your wisdom teeth to avoid these types of problems and keep your mouth and smile healthy. During your initial consultation, we will thoroughly examine your mouth and the position of your wisdom teeth to determine if they should be removed and create a treatment plan that will meet your needs. We will take special care when performing your wisdom teeth extraction procedure to help you feel comfortable. Following your extraction, our dentist and team will provide you with instructions to help you heal and recover.
