Wisdom teeth are the last of our permanent teeth to erupt. Because most of our jaws are narrow or small, wisdom teeth often become impacted. When this happens, a plethora of problems can occur to your oral health. Here at DFW Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we offer wisdom tooth removal as a way to avoid the problems that can come from having impacted wisdom teeth.

Cysts or tumors are more likely to develop when wisdom teeth become impacted. As they continue to erupt, pain and discomfort can also occur. Having your wisdom teeth erupt can also change the alignment of your teeth making it hard to brush or clean the back of your teeth, which causes bacteria and plaque to reside and cavities to grow. To reduce these kinds of things from happening, many people find it best to have their wisdom teeth removed entirely.

Having your wisdom teeth removed is a surgical procedure Drs. Pedro Franco, Howard Price, and Drew Havard are all skilled and trained in. If you are considering having your wisdom teeth removed, then give us a call today at 972-594-7414 to set up a consultation. Our team is happy to assist you in any way we can.
