Wisdom teeth are extra molars that develop in the far back of the mouth during the teenage or early twenties for most people. Patients can have anywhere between zero to four wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth extraction is a common oral surgery procedure performed in order to prevent damage to the oral structure.
When you choose an oral surgeon for wisdom teeth extractions, you are benefiting from years of experience, education and technology to give you optimum results.
Dr. William Lane advises the removal of wisdom teeth at an early age whenever possible, even if you have no symptoms. This is because the roots of the wisdom teeth become more fully formed as you age. As a result, removal gets more difficult and the risk of complications increase. Also, people may heal more slowly as they grow older. If not removed, wisdom teeth can cause jaw pain, damage to surrounding teeth and bone, and become infected.
