Wisdom teeth are the four permanent adult teeth at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom. Usually, wisdom tooth erupts at the age of 17-25. When the wisdom teeth do not have room to emerge out than it gets stuck creating the problem to the adjacent teeth. Removing the wisdom late teens or early twenties is a great chance because teeth are not fully formed and bone surrounding the teeth is less dense. Partial erupting wisdom tooth results in dental crowding, cyst formation, and infection. So usually the dentist recommends for the removal of it because these can create the problems causing serious damage to the adjacent teeth and jaw bone.

We have the experienced staff at our dental office to provide the environment of optimum safety, utilizing the modern monitoring equipment. Our dentist explains the procedure in detail during the procedure. The surgery is performed under appropriate anesthesia to maximize your comfort.

A folded cotton gauze pad placed over the wound will help stop the bleeding. Your dentist will tell whether stitches need to be removed or dissolves over time.
