Discover the Many Reasons to Remove Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are a holdover from days when our ancestors ate lots of tough-to-chew foods and required “extra” molars. Because they’re a tight fit in most jaws, they can crowd your other teeth. In some cases they become impacted, meaning they don’t emerge fully from your gums. Their location in the back of your mouth also makes it tough to keep them clean.
To prevent the kinds of problems that can result from these conditions, we may suggest extracting wisdom teeth. Removing wisdom teeth can help you avoid more complicated and costly procedures in the future.
