Do My Wisdom Teeth Need To Be Pulled Out?
For many patients, the wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, usually start causing problems in the mid-to-late teen years or the early twenties. When wisdom teeth erupt - or attempt to erupt - you or your teen could experience pain or swelling in the very back of the mouth.
Though there is no “right” age to have your wisdom teeth removed, the surgery and healing are much easier at a younger age when a patient’s risk for complications is at a minimum. In addition, with age comes fuller root formation and additional factors that collectively tend to both increase the difficulty of the extraction process and affect the patient’s ease with post-surgical recovery.
During your consultation, a panoramic radiograph or CBCT 3D image taken in-house to provide the exact placement of wisdom teeth, nerves, roots, and jaw. This simple process will expertly determine if wisdom tooth extraction could help you.
