WHAT ARE WISDOM TEETH?
Wisdom Teeth Extractions in Houston, TX
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars to grow in one’s mouth. They are located in the back of your mouth and can be used to grind food. If it is necessary, wisdom teeth can be removed by a dentist to prevent any issues in the future.
Why Should You Remove Your Wisdom Teeth?
When wisdom teeth arrive in your late teens or early twenties, they can cause many problems for your oral health. At Gessner Smile Dentistry, we offer extraction surgeries to remove these final molars before it is too late and prevent any issues that may come along.
For many people, wisdom teeth come in with little to no issues, however, others experience pain and discomfort due to these molars growing sideways and limited space in the jaw. In these cases, it may be better to have these teeth removed and avoid other complications later on.
The decision to have one’s wisdom teeth extracted is ultimately up to you, but if they’re causing issues with chewing or speaking then many people will want them removed.
