Wisdom Teeth Removal Stories
Around the ages of 17 to 25, the third molars or wisdom teeth begin to emerge into the mouth. Suddenly, the mouth is overcrowded, and this can cause a host of common oral health problems which are more easily treated in younger patients. Because of this, most dental professionals recommend that these molars be removed early. Your family dentist can monitor you or your child’s wisdom teeth development with regular dental checkups, and when wisdom teeth removal is recommended, you will be referred to a trusted specialist such as Dr. Esmail.
Because wisdom teeth are often extracted in the late teens or early twenties, this procedure is usually the first time a patient has experienced an oral surgery procedure. Of course, many of our wisdom teeth patients are curious or apprehensive about their surgery, so we encourage them to check out these stories featuring patients who have had their wisdom teeth extracted by our team. Knowing what to expect from this procedure will help you feel more relaxed when you come in for your procedure.
