Wisdom teeth typically show up in our late teens and early twenties, remaining under the gum if there is not enough room to accommodate the extra teeth. Such scenarios can cause infection, crowding, damage to other teeth and cysts that permanently damage the jaw. X-rays can help us to track wisdom teeth and monitor their development in your mouth.
Using local anesthesia, the extraction of wisdom teeth are usually easily removed in one piece. Swelling and discomfort is a natural side effect, though we do our best to make the process as painless for you as possible. Talk to us in Anchorage, AK
