Need impacted wisdom teeth removed?
South Auckland Dental have a wisdom tooth removal specialist.
Wisdom teeth begin to erupt and move at around age 18 and are often called third molars. These may need to be surgically removed if they get stuck or wedged in – referred to as impacted wisdom teeth.
This failure to erupt properly may occur either because there is not enough room in the jaw for the tooth, or because it is in an abnormal position. Many oral health specialists recommend removal of wisdom teeth, as early extraction helps eliminate a number of problems including infection, crowding, decay and damage to adjacent teeth.
