Wisdom Teeth Extraction
If you have wisdom teeth, your Dental Care Center dentist may recommend that they be removed to prevent infection or decay that might affect surrounding teeth.
A set of four molars, referred to as third molars or wisdom teeth, typically erupt behind second molars as a teenager or young adult. It is very common for patients to experience discomfort with wisdom teeth due to inflammation and swelling as they erupt.
Most patients do not have room for wisdom teeth. Because these “extra” teeth are positioned far back in the mouth and are difficult to clean, they are prone to tooth decay.
