Wisdom Tooth Removal
Extracting Wisdom Teeth Prevents and Relieves Jaw Pain
Wisdom Teeth Typically Grow in During Late Teen Years
As we age, our bodies are constantly changing and adapting. A common oral change is the growth of wisdom teeth, or third molars, in the back of our mouths. These teeth usually begin erupting between 17 and 21 years of age. For some, their wisdom teeth have adequate space to grow in and erupt without incident. For many people though, wisdom teeth grow in unnaturally and can cause pain or problems with the jaw. We offer effective wisdom tooth removal to safely extract these extra teeth when they become a problem.
Common Wisdom Teeth Complications
When your jaw does not have the adequate space to support these third molars, wisdom teeth can cause all kinds of complications. When the tooth does not erupt fully, it becomes impacted below the gum line. This can cause pain, infection and even shift surrounding molars. Additionally, crowding can occur if there is not enough room for the tooth to grow in, pushing surrounding teeth together and potentially altering your bite.
