Wisdom teeth typically come in between the ages of 16-18 and often need to be removed to prevent other dental problems. When wisdom teeth don’t come in properly they can often lead to over crowding creating orthodontic issues such as crooked teeth and disrupting your bite. Another common problem with wisdom teeth is when they become impacted (become trapped under the gums) they can become infected creating abysses, cysts causing damage to the surrounding tissue and neighboring teeth.
How do we ensure your comfort during an extraction? If it is a more complicated case we utilize our ORTHOPHOS SL 3D to view a 3D image of the wisdom teeth and the surrounding structure to better diagnose the problem and to better plan the extraction so as to minimize damage to surrounding tissue and minimize potential complications before they happen. Additionally if you are anxious about the removal of your wisdom teeth we also offer nitrous oxide and oral medication to reduce your anxiety.
