As their name suggests, the wisdom teeth are the last set of adult teeth to emerge. Although many patients don’t experience problems with their wisdom teeth, these large molars can sometimes become misaligned as they grow. Because this can lead to damage to your other teeth, we remove the wisdom teeth before they emerge from your gums.
The wisdom teeth are surgically removed through incisions made in your gums. After the teeth are removed we close the incisions with sutures. The procedure is performed under a local anesthetic and sedation is also provided if needed.
After your treatment we’ll give you post-surgical instructions to manage any pain, discomfort, or swelling you may experience.
