Wisdom teeth removal can help keep your smile healthy.

Questions & answers

Wisdom teeth removal

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third molars and the final teeth to erupt in the mouth. They are at the very back of your mouth, nearest to your throat, and typically erupt between the ages of 15 and 20.

Why is wisdom teeth removal necessary?

Because wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come in, there is not usually enough space to accommodate them. This can cause crowding, misaligned teeth, impacted teeth and other problems and may lead to infection or tooth damage. This makes removing wisdom teeth key to maintaining good oral health.

How will you know when to have your wisdom teeth removed?

Our dentists will monitor the development of your wisdom teeth to determine when they should be removed. Dental X-rays show wisdom teeth coming in, so make sure to make and keep regular dental appointments for exams. There are also some symptoms that may help you know when your wisdom teeth should come out, including:

  • Pain and tenderness in the jaw
  • Swelling and redness in the gums
  • Discharge from infection or abscesses
  • A visible tooth coming through at the back of your mouth

Wisdom teeth removal

What is wisdom teeth removal?

The third molars, or wisdom teeth, are the last teeth to erupt. Most people’s mouths cannot accommodate these teeth, which causes them to become impacted (unable to erupt properly) or to come in at a bad angle. By removing these teeth, you can prevent a number of problems, including:

  • Misalignment of your other teeth
  • Damage to neighboring teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Infection and inflammation of the gums and surrounding areas
  • Cysts
  • Damage to your jawbone
What is the goal of wisdom teeth removal?

Removing wisdom teeth helps keep your mouth healthy and your smile properly aligned. At each of your or your child’s regular dental appointments, our dentists will evaluate the position of the teeth to determine if wisdom teeth removal is the best option. If so, we will remove the wisdom teeth as gently as possible and provide post-op instructions to aid in healing and recovery afterwards.
