Wisdom teeth

Extraction of wisdom teeth or third molars is one of the most common reasons for tooth removal in teens and young adults. They’re the last permanent teeth to erupt through and as such wisdom teeth often lack enough space and tend to push into other teeth and become ‘impacted’, which can cause infection, damage to surrounding teeth and ultimately pain. At your regular check-up appointments our team may take x-rays to determine if you need to have your wisdom teeth removed before they cause any pain or damage.
