Wisdom Teeth

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.

Unfortunately, most people choose to wait until they are in pain or infected before seeking care.

The wisest thing to do is to remove them as part of your preventative care, when there is no pain or infection present as this will help ensure good healing.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

Everyone was so great when I came in to get my wisdom teeth taken out. I scheduled my appointment very late about a week before I left for school, but they were so great and were able to squeeze me in and find a time that worked for me early in the morning. I definitely would recommend them!!
