The third molars, or wisdom teeth, usually begin to come in between age 17 and 25, leaving adults with 32 teeth – but only room for 28. Without the space to accommodate these four molars, some adults experience discomfort and swelling that can lead to more serious issues, like infection or decay, if ignored. Extracting wisdom tooth not only helps maintain overall oral health but prevents future problems.
Wisdom teeth removal is performed on millions of patients each year, but the advanced procedures at Palmetto Oral & Facial Surgery ensure more comfortable healing.
