What sounds like fun to you? A birthday party? A day at a theme park? Eating lunch with a friend? How about having teeth pulled? Wisdom teeth removal isn’t most people’s idea of an enjoyable time, even less so when they’re in advanced years. When people grow older, their wisdom teeth roots grow deeper and become extra hard to extract.

For this reason, we generally recommend patients who need to have their wisdom teeth removed do so between the ages of 15 and 25. While it’s correct that some people never have wisdom teeth removed and are fine, impacted wisdom teeth can do great damage if they’re not pulled. For instance, abscesses, cysts, tumors and infections may grow around the area of the wisdom teeth, and if the teeth try to emerge, they can cause misalignment and damage to the other molars. If you’re considering having your wisdom teeth removed, and even if you’re older than 25, please reach out to us and we’d be happy to work with you.
