Everything To Know About Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom Teeth Removal is a preventative procedure most commonly performed by oral surgeons. Wisdom teeth are the last to develop and have the potential to cause cavities, decay, and bite disruption. Since wisdom teeth removal is so minor, the advantages of removal can outweigh potential complications of leaving them in. The procedure may be done at any age, but a majority of patients receive it between the ages of 16 to 21.
Benefits of Removing Wisdom Teeth
Reduced Pain & Discomfort:
Alleviate the pain and discomfort by preventing eruption.
Prevent Infections & Tooth Decay:
Wisdom teeth can be difficult to clean, removal simplifies your oral hygiene routine.
Healthier & Balanced Bite:
Preserve the look and feel of your current smile.
Minor Procedure:
When monitored and removed properly, complications are rare.
