Our oral surgeons provide wisdom teeth removal to extract your third molars before they can cause damage to your teeth and smile. Because your wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt, there is not usually enough space in your mouth to accommodate them. This can lead to a variety of problems, including:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Broken teeth
- Cysts and tumors
- Changes to your tooth alignment
- Infection and inflammation
- Damage to your jawbone
- Impaction (teeth which are trapped in the jawbone and cannot fully erupt)
By removing your wisdom teeth you can avoid these and other problems to keep your mouth and smile healthy.
During your initial consultation, our oral surgeons will evaluate your mouth. This includes taking X-rays to determine the exact position of your wisdom teeth. We will then develop a plan to remove the teeth that is as minimally invasive as possible. Our oral surgeons will also discuss anesthesia and other sedation options with you – we are committed to your comfort and want your experience to be as painless and convenient as possible.
Following your procedure we will provide you with post-op instructions to help you heal.
