Wisdom Tooth Extractions

  • Wisdom teeth are the last molars or “third molars” that usually emerge in the back of the mouth between the ages of 16-20.

  • When the jaw isn't large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, they can become impacted (unable to come in or misaligned).

  • Often problems develop that require their removal. Wisdom teeth may grow in sideways, emerge only part way through the gums or remain trapped beneath the gums and bone. 

  • After the tooth is removed, we will provide care instructions to ensure proper healing. 
  • Some pain and swelling may occur but will normally subside after a few days.  You should call us if you have prolonged or severe pain, swelling, bleeding or fever.
