Wisdom Tooth Concerns
Wisdom teeth are a common concern for most people and generally become an issue in the late teens and early 20’s. Wisdom teeth are third molars that grow in the back of your mouth. Many times, wisdom teeth are impacted or there is not enough space in the jaw to fit them. In these cases, dental extraction of wisdom teeth often gives patients relief of pain and potential damage to their surrounding teeth. Common problems associated with wisdom teeth include:
- Crowding of surrounding teeth
- Partial eruption
- Impacted teeth
- Nerve damage
Wisdom Tooth Extraction is a Common Procedure

You will quickly feel the benefits after having problem wisdom teeth removed, alleviating any pain from their eruption and saving your smile from damage.
