Wisdom Teeth Removal

Get The Best Wisdom Teeth Removal

Since your wisdom teeth are the final set of permanent teeth to develop, there’s a good chance that there won’t be enough room in your mouth for them to erupt properly. The teeth may erupt sideways, partially or become impacted in the jaw, leading to pain, infection, overcrowding and swelling. One or all of your wisdom teeth may need to be removed to prevent issues such as impacted wisdom teeth from occurring or to correct problems that are already present..

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, usually develop sometime during the late teens and mid-twenties. Most people have four wisdom teeth, but it is possible to have less or none at all. When properly aligned, wisdom teeth removal is not necessary. This is not generally the case, however, and most people do not have jawbones large enough to accommodate all four emerging teeth — and that can pose a number of problems. Wisdom tooth extraction may be the best course of action in cases where infection, inflammation, pain or crowding is present.

For this reason, Grove Dental Associates recommends that you maintain regular dental checkups to monitor the condition of your wisdom teeth. With four locations in Bolingbrook, Downers Grove, Lombard and Wheaton, our Board Certified oral surgeons can safely and comfortably handle your wisdom teeth surgery.
