Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth will differ for every patient, with some people having all four wisdom teeth, and some people none at all. Some wisdom teeth do not cause any problems, while others may cause complications as they emerge into your mouth, and sometimes before they do so.

When the wisdom teeth become impacted, due to erupting at an angle and being trapped below the gum line, they can cause damage to your jawbone, gums, and adjoining teeth. In such cases, wisdom teeth commonly require removal.

An in-depth examination at Wisdom will allow us to see the exact number and location of your wisdom teeth using x-rays, and to develop a personal treatment plan for you.

Often, we may recommend taking a preventive approach and extracting wisdom teeth even before they cause problems. In this way we can avoid the chance of more serious problems later in life.
