One of the most common problems we treat is impacted wisdom teeth. For most patients, the best approach to wisdom teeth is simply to remove them, preventing further complications down the road.
What is an Impacted Tooth?
Most people have no problem growing 32 adult teeth. But often, the jaw is simply too small to accommodate the remaining four wisdom teeth, which can prevent the wisdom teeth from erupting. When teeth fail to erupt, they are impacted and are thus not in the proper position for chewing or cleaning.
