Wisdom teeth removal and tooth extractions are considered when a tooth is decayed or damaged beyond repair. Removal of wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, is a special form of tooth extraction that is required for most adults.
- Wisdom teeth are the last to erupt from the gumline. They often erupt at an angle and there is often not enough room for them to grow properly
- Wisdom teeth may become impacted, meaning they become stuck in the gum tissue and jawbone, creating infection
- Multiple cosmetic dentistry options are available to patients once the damaged teeth are removed.
