General Dentistry - Wisdom Teeth

In most cases wisdom teeth just cause problems and it is wise to get them removed.

Wisdom Teeth are usually removed because you do not have enough room in your mouth for the wisdom teeth to come in and function properly. If wisdom teeth are left in they can cause pain and damage adjacent teeth.

If you still have your wisdom teeth well into your mid-twenties sometimes the risk of removal outweighs the benefit.

Dr. Godfrey always takes an x-ray to evaluate your wisdom teeth and will discuss what is the very best treatment for you.
