Wisdom Teeth Services
Wisdom teeth are known as the third molar. These are the last molars to grow into your mouth, and usually make their appearance from the late teens and throughout the early twenties. For some people, the molars grow in properly aligned and can become somewhat of an advantage to their mouth and teeth. More often than not, however, they will grow in misaligned and cause you and your mouth problems.
There are Risks Associated with Misaligned Wisdom Teeth:
- Crowding or damaging to adjacent teeth, jawbone or nerves
- Increased risk of tooth decay to the third molars and surrounding teeth
- Increased risk of bacteria and infection
- Possible pain, swelling, jaw stiffness and further illness
- Increased risk of gum disease

Once your permanent teeth are grown in, there may be some instances where a tooth (or teeth) may need to be extracted. These cases need to be properly diagnosed by a professional dentist—any and all alternatives should be discussed when considering tooth extraction.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
- Preparation for Orthodontic or Cosmetic Treatment
- Infection or Risk of Infection
- Advanced Periodontal Disease
- Advanced Decay
Under most cases, extraction of the tooth is the last resort to maintain dental health. In order to keep your teeth healthy and functional, it is important that you maintain proper oral hygiene within the home and attend regularly scheduled dental appointments. The odds of detecting decay and preventing infection are greatly increased by scheduling regular exams and cleanings.
