Wisdom teeth are molars located in the back of your mouth. For most patients, they begin to erupt in their late teens or early 20s. Sometimes, these teeth become impacted, which means there isn’t enough room for them to erupt. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause gum swelling and severe pain, which is why they should be removed by Dr. Stephens as soon as possible.
Your wisdom teeth will be expertly removed under Dr. Stephens’ care. He will consult with you to determine the best sedation option for you and provide a precision medicine approach. You will know you are in trusted hands with Dr. Stephens.
Impacted wisdom teeth are also difficult to clean, making you more susceptible to tooth decay, recurring infections and gum disease. If Dr. Stephens recommends removing impacted wisdom teeth, you should schedule the procedure right away.
