Wisdom Teeth Extractions in Wheat Ridge
Wisdom teeth or 3rd molars are the last set of adult teeth that develop in the mouth. We often recommend that patients get them removed.
Why extract wisdom teeth?
- Because of where they are located and how late they are developed, they are often impacted.
- Impaction is when a tooth fails to erupt. In the case of wisdom teeth, it is usually due to lack of space in the mouth, or the poor direction where the teeth developed.
- Keeping them may result in jaw problems or have a negative impact on existing teeth.
