In the past, wisdom teeth may have been useful when tooth loss was more common. However, improvements in dental care and access to more foods make it easier to prevent tooth loss. This means that when wisdom teeth do erupt, it’s unlikely that you will have room to accommodate them. If you begin to notice chronic discomfort in the back of your mouth or swelling in this area, we can perform a safe and effective wisdom tooth extraction before it begins to cause harm.
