At Mount Pearl Dental, our dentists offer wisdom teeth removal services for impacted or not erupted wisdom teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Your wisdom teeth are the last permanent teeth to come in, or erupt. If there is not enough room left in your mouth to accommodate them, this can lead to pain or discomfort in your mouth.
We will remove wisdom teeth if they affect the structure of the jaw, gums and surrounding teeth.
As teeth removed before age 20 have less developed roots and fewer complications, the ideal time to visit your dentist to discuss if you should have your wisdom teeth removed is between the ages of 16 and 19.
Even if your wisdom teeth aren't causing any pain or other problems, they may cause problems at some point. The most common problems are decay, infection and crowding or damage to other teeth.
