With age comes wisdom… Specifically Wisdom Teeth.
Wisdom teeth tend to make their appearance between the ages of 17 – 21. They are also referred to as your third molars. It is normal to have some discomfort when they are coming through the gums, but if you have any pain you need to call the office aright away.
Impacted & Extractions
Sometimes they do not have enough room or positioned wrong to come straight up.
If they are impacted, trapped in your jaw or under the gums, Dr. Moore would have you come into our office and have them extracted.
The extraction of wisdom teeth is a very common procedure. but it is important for us to take a 3D image of the mouth & jaw and perform a pre-surgical consultation… Which can all be conveniently done here in our Angola, Goshen or Warsaw Offices.
