Wisdom Teeth Extractions – The Woodlands, TX
Removing Unnecessary Third Molars
For thousands of years, before oral hygiene became important, tooth loss occurred far more frequently for our ancestors. That’s why around the late teen or early adult years, another set of molars would erupt and enable them to continue chewing food. These days, however, we tend to take better care of our permanent teeth. In many cases, these third molars, commonly called wisdom teeth, are not necessary. In fact, they can end up causing harm to your smile. If you or your child is between 16 and 23 years old, these teeth can become a concern, so contact our team in The Woodlands for an evaluation.

Reasons to Extract Wisdom Teeth
In some cases, our dentists will not remove wisdom teeth because there is enough room in the patient’s mouth to accommodate these teeth safely. However, most people do not have sufficient space for extra molars, which can push the other teeth out of alignment or cause soreness, toothaches, and problems with the jaw joint. For some, the wisdom teeth come in at an angle, a situation known as impaction. When this happens, bacteria can become trapped beneath the gums, leading to an infection. If you notice any of these symptoms, or if our dentists identify these problems with your wisdom teeth, we may recommend extraction to keep your smile safe and healthy for many years to come.
