The wisdom teeth are the final set of molars at the end of each arch of teeth. Wisdom teeth usually come out during the late teens or early 20s, and they can offer some functional benefits if they’re healthy, but they’re usually misaligned and necessitate wisdom teeth removal. Since wisdom teeth erupt late, your jaw may not have enough space to accommodate them, leading to overcrowding, impacted wisdom teeth, and other problems. That’s why you may need a wisdom tooth extraction.
At Sapphire Smiles, we believe every tooth is precious and do our best to save all of them. In some situations, however, preserving a tooth may be detrimental to your overall oral health. That’s precisely the case with impacted wisdom teeth, which can damage your gum tissues, bone structure, and the surrounding teeth. Our dentist will carefully examine your wisdom tooth to determine if a wisdom tooth extraction is necessary, and we provide some of the most painless wisdom teeth removal procedures.
