Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth can lead to problems if there isn't enough space for them to surface or they come through in the wrong position. Wisdom teeth also known as third molars are the last teeth to erupt into the mouth. Wisdom teeth typically appear around a person's mid-twenties but can erupt much later. If the wisdom teeth don't have enough space symptoms can occur. The wisdom teeth may only partially erupt or might not come through at all. Dentists designate wisdom teeth 'impacted' if they are wholly or partly blocked from eruption into the mouth. The tooth may lie at an angle and remain tipped against an adjacent tooth. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems like pain and swelling; The mouth could ache when stretched open wide or it may be difficult to open your mouth. Tenderness when chewing and biting may occur. Earaches may develop from the spread of pain in the mouth. Symptoms may be intermittent but can begin anytime without warning. If you are experiencing symptoms, it is best to get treatment 'usually removal' as soon as you can to avoid potentially expensive and painful complications.

    I was a little nervous about getting my wisdom teeth removed, but once I met Victoria in the lobby, I felt a lot better about the procedure. She made the process so stress free, and I felt like I had known her for years after just a few minutes of conversation. This girl is one of the best receptionist I've ever met, and she really does deserve a raise! Thank you Victoria for making my visit so pleasant! I wish I had more wisdom teeth to pull just so I could visit the staff here. Such a wonderful atmosphere!
