Wisdom Teeth Removal

At some point in our lives, we must decide to either let our wisdom teeth grow in – which can lead to severe complications – or have them removed.

Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth to emerge. When your wisdom teeth become impacted due to overcrowding, this can present a problem. Wisdom teeth can be hard to clean, so they are more vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease. When erupted partially, the opening around the teeth allows bacteria to grow and will eventually cause an infection resulting in swelling, stiffness, pain, and illness. We can ensure you feel at ease during the procedure and will help to maintain your oral health for years
to come.

When Should I Remove Wisdom Teeth?

Many patients report a significant reduction of discomfort in their mouth after having their wisdom teeth pulled, and the process itself is quick and safe. Early removal of your wisdom teeth is recommended to avoid future problems and to decrease the risk involved with the procedure. It is always preferable to remove wisdom teeth when they are not causing an emergent problem. While your wisdom teeth may not be causing you pain now, the risk of decay and infection increases as you age.
