No one likes the thought of having to lose a tooth. Our doctors would only recommend a tooth extraction if no other treatment or method of saving a tooth was available.

Wisdom teeth extractions are a normal part of growing up, and it is usually required by their late teens or early twenties. While the teeth may not initially cause physical discomfort, the angle of impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems with adjacent teeth and can create inflammation and irritation as they continue to erupt. In most cases, wisdom teeth are taken out to prevent overcrowding and maintain optimal tooth and gum health. Extracting wisdom teeth when you’re younger allows for quicker healing and prevents future problems.
