Q. Why remove wisdom teeth?
A. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. When they align properly and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. Poorly positioned or impacted wisdom teeth can cause many problems including pain, infection and decay on the back of the second molars and crowding of the other healthy teeth. Early removal of problematic wisdom teeth is recommended to avoid such future problems and to decrease the surgical risk involved with the procedure. Our Oral Surgery Specialist team works closely with your dentist to insure a successful outcome and beautiful smile.
