Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need To Be Removed?

Medical and dental research have provided us with clear insight and scientific evidence of the benefits of early wisdom tooth removal. According to peer-reviewed studies, there is a 25% risk of silent infection in adolescents and young adults with retained wisdom teeth, and that risk only increases as you get older.

A majority of the population will need to have their wisdom teeth extracted to avoid pain and irritation. Wisdom teeth can cause unwanted shifts in teeth, are prone to dental caries, can damage neighboring teeth, cysts around the teeth, inflamed gums and sometimes more serious health issues.

Our doctors are Board Certified specialists with over 30 years of experience. We are following strict COVID-Safe protocols following CDC, OSHA & ADA guidelines.

Timing Is Key

When it comes to wisdom teeth, timing is everything. We recommend having your child's wisdom teeth removed between the age of 15 to 20 years old. At this age, the healing process is faster, more predictable and the risk of complications is much lower.
