WISDOM TEETH/EXTRACTIONS

WHY ARE EXTRACTIONS NECESSARY?

Sometimes a tooth becomes so infected that it can no longer be treated with other means to save the tooth. We offer safe removal of these teeth and options to replace them as needed.

Another reason teeth made need to be removed is to create enough space for the rest of the teeth to fit in proper alignment in your mouth.

WHY WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTIONS?

Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars to erupt, but often there is not enough room left in the mouth. Because of this, wisdom teeth may be impacted or erupt sideways or only partially. Wisdom teeth usually erupt between the ages of 17 and 21.

Wisdom teeth extraction is necessary if the teeth cause pain, infection, swelling, or begin to affect the other teeth.

It is much easier to remove wisdom teeth when you are younger as healing is easier and quicker and it prevents problems that would arise later in life.
