Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth can cause numerous dental problems, most commonly pain and discomfort. The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial suggests that nearly 90% of people have at least one problematic wisdom tooth, and sometimes people aren’t aware that there is a problem at all.
Removal of wisdom teeth is a surgical procedure, and our dentists are highly trained to remove your wisdom teeth, whether they are impacted, infected, or decayed. Scheduling an appointment for an exam will help you identify if you need to have your wisdom teeth removed, and what your options are in moving forward.
