Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Entrust your wisdom teeth assessment to our experienced team
Wisdom teeth (sometimes referred to as adult third molars), are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth – typically in the late teen to early adult years. Although some people may not encounter any issues with their wisdom teeth, it is estimated that over 80% of people struggle to keep their wisdom teeth.
When would I need to have them removed?
If your wisdom teeth are causing you pain or discomfort, we recommend coming to see our elite dental professionals for an assessment.
There are a number of reasons why a wisdom tooth may need to be removed:
- Wisdom teeth can come into the mouth at an angle – distorting the proper alignment of your bite and smile
- Wisdom teeth can become impacted and not emerge straight – only partially coming through the gum line
- Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to a range of issues including a distorted bite, decay and even abscesses
- Not all problems associated with wisdom teeth will cause pain, so it is important to regularly visit our practice for check-ups to assess the development of your wisdom teeth.
we can expertly assess your wisdom teeth before they cause any further concerns.
