Wisdom Teeth Removal
The third set of molars that grow in last, typically between the ages 15 and 25, are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. Improper eruption of these molars can result in serious issues including infection, pain, and damage to adjacent teeth and bone. Studies have shown that 90% of chewing function occurs on the first molar and premolar region; the remaining 10% of chewing occurs with the second molars. Very little or no chewing occurs with the third molars. In addition third molars are highly susceptible to dental caries (cavities) because they tend to be more difficult to brush, floss, and clean given their location in the mouth. If you are suffering from jaw related pain or suspect your wisdom teeth are causing you discomfort, please contact us for further evaluation to see what treatment options are available to treat your third molars.
