Wisdom Teeth Evaluation
Wisdom teeth are the last molars, or "third molars" that develop on each side of the jaw. They usually emerge in the back of the mouth between the ages of 16-20.
Wisdom teeth are a valuable asset to the mouth when they are healthy and properly positioned. Often, however, they cause problems and require removal. When the jaw isn't large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, they can become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth may grow sideways, emerge only part way through the gum or remain trapped beneath the gum and bone. Depending on the position of your wisdom teeth, we will either remove them at our practice or refer you to a specialist for treatment.
Please call our office if you have any questions or concerns regarding your wisdom teeth.Back
