The wisdom teeth are the final set of teeth to break through. They emerge at the back of your mouth as a third set of molars. For most people, there isn't enough room in the mouth to fit these unnecessary extra teeth, and removal is the best option.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
If there isn't enough room in the mouth for your wisdom teeth, they can become impacted by emerging under your existing molars. To prevent this from happening, we remove them before they have a chance to cause damage to your other teeth.
Since the removal occurs while the wisdom teeth are still in your gums, surgery is necessary. You'll be under anesthesia and optional sedation during the treatment to ensure there is no pain. After the surgery, you may feel pain as your mouth heals. We'll give you options for managing this pain post-surgery to make the healing process as comfortable as possible.
