Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Click here to schedule a free consultation for wisdom teeth (including X-rays).
Over the years of human evolution, due to the changes in diet and jawbone structure, wisdom teeth have become completely “obsolete.”
Unfortunately, though, wisdom teeth won’t go away on their own! Wisdom teeth still persist on trying to come in to mouths that don’t have enough room to accommodate them, and as a result, most people will need to have their wisdom teeth extracted at some point.
Wisdom teeth can become infected which can quickly turn into a dental emergency. In fact, infected wisdom teeth are one of the most common emergency situations we see at our office.
Wisdom teeth are your far back molars, two on each side, and they typically try to poke out of the gums when people are in their late teens or early twenties.
For some, wisdom teeth come in without complications, there’s enough room for them, and the teeth never have to be pulled. But for the majority of people, wisdom teeth will need to be extracted because they become abscessed (which can cause severe pain), they become impacted, and/or they come in at an odd angle (e.g. horizontally, not vertically).
We can perform all types of tooth extractions, including wisdom teeth extractions, and we often use sedation for the procedures.
Wisdom teeth extractions are usually covered by your dental insurance.
In a free dental consultation, which includes X-rays, we can take a look at your wisdom teeth and then let you know what your options are.
