Have Your Wisdom Teeth Removed in a Comfortable Office
Most people have their wisdom teeth, or “third molars,” erupt between age 16 and 20. Oftentimes there isn’t enough room in the mouth for these teeth, and this can cause some serious oral issues.
Fortunately, the procedure to remove wisdom teeth is routine. If you choose to have your wisdom teeth removed, you can elect to have local anesthesia or use IV sedation.
Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Many problems can occur when wisdom teeth do not erupt properly. They can become impacted, which means that the tooth is partially or completely trapped underneath the gum and bone, causing pain, swelling, sinus issues and even jaw damage. If the removal of wisdom teeth is put off, this can endanger the health and alignment of your existing teeth.
Removal of your wisdom teeth is not always essential, but it is recommended during your late teens to early 20s to avoid later problems.The bones in your mouth harden over time, making it much more difficult to remove wisdom teeth later on.
