One of the most common dental surgeries performed by Dr. Smallwood is a wisdom tooth extraction. While wisdom teeth can benefit the overall health of your mouth when they position themselves properly, this is seldom the case.
At The Centre for Contemporary Dental Concepts, our Scottsdale dentist provides wisdom teeth extractions to patients who are in need.
There are a variety of reasons that wisdom teeth are removed, but generally the extraction is performed because of one of the following reasons:
A wisdom tooth extraction should be performed earlier in life in order to prevent any complications or long-term side effects. Ideally, wisdom teeth can be removed in the teenage years, but definitely should be examined before the age of 30.
Since tooth roots are not fully formed at a younger age, the process of removing a wisdom tooth is much easier for both the patient and the dentist performing the procedure.
If you think that your wisdom teeth may need to be removed, then we encourage you to come visit our Phoenix dentist to discuss your needs. We provide gentle extractions to patients, thus helping them significantly reduce any immediate pain and long-term dental complications resulting from wisdom teeth.
