Wisdom Teeth Extraction in Sugar land & Houston TX

The third molars commonly known as the "wisdom teeth" usually appear between the ages of 16 and 25. Many adults have four wisdom teeth, but it is possible to have less or more, in which case the extras are known as supernumerary teeth. Wisdom teeth usually affect other teeth as they develop, becoming impacted (coming in sideways). Preventive removal of the third molars is a common practice in many countries and is usually recommended by dentists.

Wisdom tooth removal is a surgical procedure. If a wisdom tooth doesn't have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, you'll likely need to have it removed. Wisdom tooth extraction may be done by a dentist or an oral surgeon. Some dentists and oral surgeons recommend wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth aren't causing problems, as a preventive measure against potential future problems.

Due to advances in dentistry, wisdom teeth removal is virtually painless, with little discomfort afterwards. Our Dentists will decide which procedure is right for your dental needs.
