Wisdom Teeth Removal in Waltham
While wisdom teeth removal is a fairly common procedure, many people remain misinformed about what all is entailed in the wisdom teeth removal process.
The third molars, also known as the wisdom teeth, are the final teeth in the mouth to develop. The wisdom teeth are unique in their development in that they have many variations. Wisdom teeth often enter the mouth at unusual angles, have a variety of shapes, or may be unable to completely erupt due to limited space at the back of the mouth.
Due to these variations, the wisdom teeth can often cause pain or complications. Wisdom teeth can also make it difficult for a patient to maintain oral hygiene and may cause crowding/shifting of the other teeth in the mouth.
To prevent complications, wisdom teeth are routinely removed. The wisdom teeth removal process is done entirely in the office under either local anesthesia or with IV sedation.
