Wisdom teeth typically emerge during your late teens to early 20s. They are your third and final set of molars to erupt. Unfortunately, they frequently become impacted and cause greater problems below the surface. Wisdom teeth can grow at an angle and damage neighboring molars, at times they can structurally harm the jaw. A cysts or infection can develop in the bone, gum tissue, and surrounding teeth as a result. Monitoring for symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth is important to prevent further damage. Oral surgeons are trained in wisdom tooth removal. In addition to performing wisdom teeth extraction, oral surgeons can treat complex facial trauma, perform jaw surgery and facial reconstructions. As the go-to specialists for wisdom tooth removals, whether the case is simple or complex, your oral surgeon can perform treatment when you need it. If you or your teen is experiencing pain, swelling, or swollen gums around the molars, we encourage you to reserve an evaluation of your wisdom teeth in Excelsior, MN or Minnetonka, MN at Facial Designs, P.A. with our experienced oral surgeon, Dr. Roderick VanSurkum.
