New York City Dentist » Dental Services » Oral Surgery » Wisdom Teeth Removal
The average adult mouth is designed to hold around 28 teeth comfortably, but most adults end up with 32. The additional four teeth are called wisdom teeth, AKA third molars. The reason that some adults grow wisdom teeth is that throughout evolutionary history, the human jaw has become smaller and smaller. Because of this, the wisdom teeth become blocked or impacted by the other teeth around them. This can become extremely traumatizing. If the wisdom tooth partially erupts, food can get trapped in the tissue surrounding it, which can lead to bacterial growth and possibly serious infection.
By removing wisdom teeth when a patient is a young adult, our doctors are able to prevent potential healing problems. When a person reaches the age of their mid-thirties, there are much higher risks involved in wisdom teeth removal. The best time to remove wisdom teeth is generally between the ages of fifteen to eighteen.
However, if you are an adult and need to remove your wisdom teeth, there’s no need to worry. Here at The Exchange Dental Group, we take extra care to make sure that our adult patients are comfortable and anxiety-free. After a consultation, we will recommend that you continue with your wisdom teeth until intervention is absolutely necessary. When it is necessary to remove your wisdom teeth, our doctors will recommend a simple and pain-free surgery. Your health is our highest concern.
We see patients on a regular basis to remove wisdom teeth. This is a common procedure at The Exchange Dental Group. If you are interested in having a consultation, please give us a call at (212) 422-9229 or email us.
