WISDOM TOOTH CONSULTATION AND REMOVAL
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars (back teeth) to develop. Typically, they erupt sometime during the mid-teen years to early 20s, but they may continue growing until you’re about 30 years old. Unfortunately, their position in the mouth can predispose teens, college students, and adults to issues like impacted teeth, cysts, discomfort, and overall crowding.
Even if they erupt completely, the location of wisdom teeth makes them more prone to cavities and gum disease. Proactively removing impacted or partially impacted wisdom teeth can reduce health complications in adjacent teeth and the overall smile.
We consistently monitor wisdom tooth development in teens and adults to intercept potential problems as early as possible.
