Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, also referred to as third molars, are the last teeth to come in during young adulthood. X-rays and regular dental exams will determine whether your wisdom teeth are healthy and properly positioned.
Every patient is unique, but in general, wisdom teeth removal is needed if you experience the following:
- Damage to adjacent teeth
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Wisdom teeth are improperly placed
- Mouth shape cannot support wisdom teeth
If you are experiencing any of the above issues, speak with your dentist and ask about wisdom teeth removal. Our experienced dentists and orthodontists can guide you through the process step-by-step, so you know exactly what to expect.
Deciding whether or not to remove wisdom teeth can be a tough choice. If you don’t have any immediate pain or discomfort, you may believe that wisdom teeth removal isn’t necessary. This instinct is not always correct. Your wisdom teeth may begin to generate more serious problems over time if left alone.
Most people get their wisdom teeth removed, and the majority do this between the ages of 17 and 25. Though wisdom teeth removal is possible after this time, the surgery and healing process is generally easier earlier in life. If your wisdom teeth are not removed, your dentist will monitor your teeth to watch for any future problems.
If you do not have medical or dental insurance, you may be concerned about the costs of wisdom teeth removal surgery. At Boston Dental Group, we can help you find a payment plan that works for you, so you don’t have to sacrifice the dental care you need.
