Preparing for Your Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth typically emerge between 16 and 25 years of age. Although it’s best to remove them in your teen and early adult years, wisdom teeth may not cause pain until later in life. Many patients don’t experience symptoms, even if they have impacted teeth. When wisdom teeth are impacted, they are blocked and are unable to fully erupt. We use our i-CAT® Cone Beam CT imaging technology to capture three-dimensional and detailed images of your teeth and their surrounding oral structures to grasp a thorough understanding of your current state before recommending your custom care. If impacted wisdom teeth extractions are advised, we will carefully remove them while you are comfortably sedated and provide detailed instructions for how to encourage healing.
