Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Why we need to remove wisdom teeth?

  • Often, wisdom teeth don’t grow in properly. A tooth is “impacted” if it’s prevented from reaching its normal position

  • Impacted wisdom teeth may hurt, and they can develop cavities, infections or periodontal disease. It’s often when these problems arise that people realize they need to have their wisdom teeth extracted.

 

When should I have my wisdom teeth removed?

  • In general, it’s best to have wisdom teeth taken out between ages 16 and 22. At this time, the crown of wisdom tooth is formed and the formation of the root is not complete, so there are fewer complications and risks.”
