Wisdom teeth often erupt between the ages of 17 and 25. They are the last teeth to develop and can cause many health issues if left untreated because the average mouth does not have room for an additional set of molars. As they try to squeeze into the dental arch, wisdom teeth can cause pain, swelling, and difficulty opening the jaw. This added pressure can cause other teeth to shift out of place, resulting in misalignment and bite problems. Some wisdom teeth become impacted, or stuck beneath the gums, and must be removed surgically because they cannot naturally erupt.
Dr. Kurtz and Dr. Lee perform wisdom teeth removal at our offices in Danbury, CT, and New Milford, CT. As expert oral surgeons, we offer a variety of anesthesia and sedation options for your comfort. Wisdom teeth removal is often performed using IV sedation, which will allow you to rest in a semi-conscious state during the surgery. Whether you have one wisdom tooth or develop several of them, having these molars extracted by an oral surgeon as soon as possible will protect your oral health.
