Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that develop between the ages of 17-24. Wisdom teeth can either erupt or stay impacted (under the gum). When wisdom teeth are impacted, this increases a patient’s risk of developing an infection. The safest way to avoid this is to discuss extraction with one of our doctors at All Coast Dental.
While oral surgery is no picnic for anyone, having wisdom teeth extracted provides more benefits to the patient than leaving them intact. Wisdom teeth can lead to gum pain, headaches, and can cause damage to surrounding teeth. Before deciding if your wisdom teeth need to be extracted, our doctors will explain the procedure and assure that you are as comfortable as possible before proceeding.
