Wisdom tooth removal is a commonly performed procedure. Located at the very back of the mouth, wisdom teeth are the last and final set of molars to erupt, usually between the ages of 17-33. For some, wisdom teeth grow in properly and cause no problems. For many others however, problems arise, and intervention is necessary to avoid more complications in the future. Problematic wisdom teeth should not be left untreated, as this can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and occlusion problems, all of which can cause severe pain and discomfort. Tooth extractions are now a much easier process than they were 30 years ago. With anesthetic, the correct tools, and gentle and experienced hands, a tooth can be extracted quickly, easily, and painlessly. Once a tooth is removed, we can discuss options for natural looking tooth replacement.
