Wisdom teeth or third molars are the last teeth to erupt into the mouth, usually starting to come in around the age of 17. Unfortunately, by this time there is often not enough room left in the jaw for them to erupt into a functional, painless, cavity-free and in a hygienic environment and they become impacted. An impacted wisdom tooth can cause a number of problems including adjacent tooth damage, crowding, cavities, pain,  infections, and in some cases cysts and tumor can develop around the teeth.

Oral surgeons are the experts at removing wisdom teeth with the fewest complications possible. At Sherwood Oral Surgery wisdom tooth removal is done as an outpatient procedure in our office.  All teeth can be removed in the same procedure and if you prefer to be unaware of the experience it can be done under deep sedation/general anesthesia.  All surgery is performed under appropriate anesthesia to maximize your comfort. Our office staff has the training, licensing, and experience to provide the various types of anesthesia and these services are provided in an environment of optimum safety, utilizing modern monitoring equipment and a well trained experienced staff.

If you are concerned about your wisdom teeth contact our office for a consultation.  With an oral examination and x-rays of the mouth, we can evaluate the position of the wisdom teeth and predict if there are present or future potential problems.
