What Are Wisdom Teeth?

As children age and mature, their molars develop and erupt through the gums. The first set generally comes in around 6 or 7 years old. The second begins to appear between the ages of 12-13. That third set starts to grow between 17 and their early 20s. This third set is known as wisdom teeth because they appear during the age of wisdom.

Why Remove Them?

Due to overcrowding in the mouth, wisdom teeth don’t always have room to grow, become impacted, and don’t fully emerge. Not only can this be painful, but it can cause the other teeth to shift and move.

Our Process

When you come to us for wisdom teeth extraction, we will use a local anesthetic or IV sedation for the surgery. Each person's situation is unique, and some are more complex than others.

After Surgery

Patients will go home the same day for rest and recovery. Some swelling and bruising might be noticeable, and patients will be on a soft food diet for a few days, such as yogurt, pudding, smoothies, and ice cream.
