what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars as we call them, are the last set of teeth that emerge in our mouth, usually between the ages of 17 to 25. Their function? Ironically, they're a little bit like a spare tire - we don't really use them for chewing our food these days. However, back in the day, our ancestors relied on these sturdy molars to grind down hard foods like nuts, roots and meat. It's quite fascinating.

Is wisdom tooth extraction always necessary?

You're likely enduring wisdom teeth issues if you're experiencing inflamed gums, pain, or discomfort. However, not all wisdom teeth need to be extracted. Sometimes, they grow in perfectly fine. But when they don't, or if they're causing issues, it's necessary to consider extraction. That's where we come in with our expert wisdom teeth surgery service in Old Bridge. We combine exceptional skills, compassion, and patience to ensure you're comfortable before, during, and after the procedure.

How does wisdom tooth removal work?

In the extraction process, we carefully loosen and remove your wisdom teeth, taking care not to disrupt the surrounding bone that cradles them. It's a precision job, you see. However, sometimes, a little bit of bone may need to be removed to free the tooth. Stitches, like tiny helping hands, then come into play, securing the area and promoting smooth healing. This, my friend, is the art of wisdom teeth removal.
