The wisdom teeth are large adult molars that are frequently removed. For many people, extraction of their wisdom teeth is a dental rite of passage that marks the end of their emergence of their adult teeth. The wisdom teeth are removed when they present a risk to the other teeth in your mouth - often they can be misaligned or there may simply not be enough room in your jaw for the wisdom to grow properly.
Because the wisdom teeth are removed before they emerge through the gums, removal is a surgical procedure that is performed in our office. If it’s necessary to remove your wisdom teeth, we will discuss the procedure and post-operative care.
