When wisdom teeth are aligned properly and the gum tissue is healthy, they do not need to be removed. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from erupting properly within the mouth—partially erupted or impacted teeth can cause many problems including excess bacteria and infection. Through an oral examination and x-rays of the mouth, our surgeons are able to evaluate the position of wisdom teeth and predict if there may be present or future problems. Patients are typically evaluated as teenagers and early removal is recommended to avoid future problems and decrease surgical risk.
