Wisdom Teeth

It is often difficult for families to find the time to schedule their children not only for the surgery, but the consult as well. It is for this reason that we offer same day consult/surgery appointments for wisdom teeth. We think this will alleviate some of the stress and anxiety families experience when trying to make an appointment.

Your dentist may have recommended that you have your wisdom teeth evaluated. It is usually recommended that your wisdom teeth be extracted even before problems develop. This is done to avoid a more painful or more complicated extraction that might have to be done later. Removal is easier in young people, when the wisdom teeth roots are not yet fully developed and the bone is less dense.

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties. Sometimes these teeth can erupt into normal occlusion, but more often, they require removal. Wisdom teeth present potential problems when they are improperly positioned. They may only partially erupt through the gums or be entrapped completely within the soft tissue and/or the jawbone. Teeth that remain partially or completely entrapped within the soft tissue or jawbone are termed “impacted.”

Having your wisdom teeth removed can be a stressful event. Our incredible oral surgery team will ensure that you have the best experience possible.
