Extractions including Wisdom teeth
Wisdom tooth surgery is a very routine procedure that most people will have to have done during their lifetime and is usually recommended in the later teenage years. At Comfort and Care Dentistry our Doctors will often remove wisdom teeth but in some cases they may refer you to an Oral Surgeon for treatment.
Contrary to what the name implies, wisdom teeth, or third molars, will not make you any smarter. For many people, they will cause all sorts of problems, including overcrowding, bite imbalance, and gum pain. When a wisdom tooth becomes impacted, meaning it is unable to come in above the gum properly, patients are at a higher risk for infections, abscesses, and cysts.
