When they hear the term oral surgery
, most people often think of wisdom teeth removal
because it is one of the most commonly performed oral surgery procedures. While not everybody is required to have their wisdom teeth extracted, there are several reasons that a patient may be recommended to an oral surgeon to have their third molars removed. The average mouth can only hold 28 teeth, so a lot of patients do not have adequate room to accommodate the eruption of their wisdom teeth. When this happens, wisdom teeth can cause several oral health issues such as impaction, infection, and misalignment of or damage to adjacent teeth. When you meet with one of our expert oral surgeons, we will develop your treatment based on your specific condition, your medical history, how many wisdom teeth you possess, and what threat they pose to your health.
