Wisdom Teeth Removal
If your child is between the ages of 17 and 25, there is an increased risk for their wisdom teeth to become impacted which can lead to pain, infection or may damage adjacent teeth or roots.
Why get wisdom teeth extracted?
- Your jaw may not be large enough for them and they may be unable to break through your gums.
- One or more of your wisdom teeth may come in at an awkward angle, with the top of the tooth facing forward, backward, or to either side.
- A more serious problem can develop from impacted teeth, such as infection, damage to other teeth and bone.
