The good news is that the treatment takes place in our Alex Bratic Dental Care office, and it takes a scant few days for you to heal and feel back to normal.
Why do wisdom teeth need to be removed?
Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars at the very back of the jaw. They are referred to as wisdom teeth because they usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25, when you are supposed to be older and wiser than when your permanent teeth first came in! Usually, wisdom teeth are first spotted by dental X-rays. In some cases they come in to the jaw without problems, but for many people they cause problems and must be removed.
