what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, which we typically call third molars, usually emerge when you're between 17 and 25. They're the last to appear, hence their name. However, it's not uncommon if they don't show at all. Fun fact, some people never develop them. On the other hand, if they do grow, just remember that they're as normal as the rest of your teeth.

Is wisdom tooth extraction a necessity?

Feeling sore, tender gums, or aching in your ears? It's likely your wisdom teeth are coming in. However, you're not always required to have them removed. We only suggest removal when they're impacted, causing discomfort, or contributing to crowding. For a simple, pain-free process, we offer professional wisdom teeth removal services in Lodi. Oftentimes, it's better to be safe than sorry.

wisdom tooth removal surgery near you

How does wisdom tooth removal work?

We start with a small incision in your gum to expose the tooth and bone, which is affectionately known as an "operational flap". Now, if the tooth is deeply impacted, we might break it into smaller pieces for easier, more precise removal. Now, don't panic, as this is done with utmost care and precision. It's a roundabout way to protect your other teeth, avoiding unnecessary harm. However, keep in mind, it's not about speed, but precision and your comfort.
