what are wisdom teeth

What's the definition of wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that we typically get in our late teens or early twenties. However, some don't get these teeth at all. The eruption timeline can vary greatly and it's possible you won't experience this until after the age of 21. While wisdom teeth play a role in your oral health, they've been largely rendered unnecessary in modern times. So, if you're curious about yours, don't hesitate to check it with a health professional.

When is wisdom teeth removal necessary?

Experiencing discomfort, pain, or swelling in the back of your mouth? You might be noticing inflamed gums, a potential symptom of wisdom teeth coming in. When those teeth become impacted or grow at an awkward angle, it's important we consider removing them. For safe, trusted oral surgery for wisdom teeth in Tucson, you're in good hands.

wisdom tooth removal surgery near you

How's a wisdom tooth extracted?

In a wisdom teeth removal surgery, we make an incision in your gum to expose the tooth and bone. With our precision, we remove any bone blocking access to the tooth root and then divide the tooth into sections if it's easier to remove in pieces. Intricate stitches or sutures are used to close the wound and promote healing. However, they aren't always necessary. It's an artful process, coupled with deep understanding of your oral structure, ensuring the surgery's smooth sailing.
