Wisdom teeth or 3rd molars typically erupt into the mouth between 18 – 24 years of age. Often, these teeth become impacted or obstructed by the 2nd molars in front of them. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, decay on adjacent teeth, and lead to soft tissue or gum infections. Early detection and removal can prevent adverse outcomes related to impaction.
At Danube Dental Clinic, Dr. Hornby removes both erupted and impacted wisdom teeth. Our patients have the option to have this carried out while under mild to moderate sedation. If you are experiencing pain, stinging or other symptoms related to your wisdom teeth, give us a call so that we can properly assess the impact they might be having on your oral health.
