While our goal is to help you maintain your dental structures for as long as possible, some teeth may cause more problems than they are worth. Patients with impacted, severely damaged, or decayed teeth may require tooth extraction to restore their dental health. Additionally, patients who have wisdom teeth will likely need to have them removed in their late teens or early twenties. It’s important to see a dentist for a professional tooth extraction so that we can ensure you do not experience any pain or discomfort caused by problematic teeth.

Why do I need my wisdom teeth removed?
Our office offers wisdom tooth removal services to help safely extract problematic wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth grow in later than all of your other teeth, meaning there is very little space left in your smile for them. Your other teeth may shift around to make space for your wisdom teeth, creating unwanted orthodontic concerns. Additionally, if there is no space left within your smile, your wisdom teeth may become impacted and cause pain.
What happens if my wisdom teeth have already grown in?
We can still extract wisdom teeth that have successfully grown in. It’s important to note that when your wisdom teeth grow in, they are placed in the far backs of your mouth. This makes them extremely difficult to keep clean. Even patients with the most thorough oral hygiene habits will struggle to keep decay and residue from building up on their wisdom teeth. This is why we recommend removing them regardless of whether or not they are able to successfully erupt.
