Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are typically removed during the late teens or early 20’s when wisdom teeth begin to emerge. For many patients, wisdom teeth pose a threat to the alignment of the teeth. The emergence of wisdom teeth can cause overcrowding and may cause teeth to shift. Wisdom teeth are also removed when they are impacted.
