Wisdom Teeth Removal
Your third molars, more commonly known as the “wisdom teeth,” are the last permanent teeth to erupt and the most likely to become impacted. To reduce the risk of such negative outcomes, many patients prefer to remove their wisdom teeth proactively, even before they develop any symptoms. Learn why it is important to have one of our oral surgeons remove wisdom teeth.
An impacted tooth simply means that it is “stuck” and cannot erupt into function. The canines are designed to be the first teeth that touch when your jaws close together so they guide the rest of the teeth into the proper bite. With oral surgery (sometimes in conjunction with orthodontics), we can bring an impacted canine into proper position and function. Learn more by calling one of our surgeons.
In addition to performing various surgical procedures, our oral and maxillofacial surgeons are also extensively involved in diagnosing and treating other oral diseases. Call us if you want to learn more about oral pathology and how to take an oral cancer self-examination.
