Wisdom Tooth Removal
In some cases, wisdom teeth erupt without issues. But at other times, they turn into a source of pain, infection, or misalignment.
Thankfully, wisdom tooth removal is a safe and virtually painless procedure at Bird & Johnson, Oral Surgery in Cocoa, FL.
Our oral surgeons can identify problems before they happen or deal with active issues to protect you or your child’s oral health.
What Are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last four teeth to grow into your mouth. They usually grow in between the ages of 17 and 25. Even when there are no obvious problems, proactive parents bring their teens in if they are at risk of future dental complications from wisdom teeth, such as overcrowding or infections. Wisdom teeth that come in at an angle can also damage otherwise healthy teeth that are nearby.
