Our specialists will perform an oral examination and take an x-ray of your mouth in order to evaluate the position of your wisdom teeth and identify any current issues that need to be addressed. This will also allow us to forecast potential for future problems so that they can be dealt with before they escalate. Early identification and subsequent treatment have proven to be much more beneficial for a patient, when compared to those who wait. This is why it is highly recommended that you receive your first wisdom teeth evaluation in the mid-teenage year by a specialist such as an orthodontist or maxillofacial surgeon.
Many households neglect to request this early evaluation for their teenager (or themselves for that matter) out of fear of a diagnosis which may call for extraction. But when caught early, wisdom teeth removal can go much smoother than when one waits until the pain sends them to the clinic out of immediate necessity. All outpatient surgery is performed under appropriate anesthesia to maximize patient comfort. Our doctors are trained, licensed, and highly experienced in wisdom tooth extraction.
