Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that emerge, usually during your late teens to early 20s. Notorious for not erupting when and as they should, wisdom teeth frequently become impacted or grow at an angle and harm neighboring molars or cause structural damage to the jaw. This area may also develop a cyst or infection that is harmful to your bone, gum tissue, and existing teeth. It’s important to watch for the signs of impacted wisdom teeth and receive an evaluation from an oral and maxillofacial surgeon if symptoms arise.
Oral surgeons are the experts in wisdom tooth extraction. Not only are they trained in performing surgical tooth extractions, but they’re also qualified to offer complex facial trauma treatments, jaw surgery, and facial reconstructions. As a result, they are the go-to specialists for wisdom teeth extractions from the simple, to the complex, and frequently perform them weekly, if not daily. If you or your teen is experiencing pain, swelling, or swollen gums around the molars, we encourage you to reserve an evaluation and wisdom tooth extraction in Lewisville, TX at Oral & Facial Surgery of North Texas with our experienced oral surgeon, Dr. Richard Martin.
