Affordable Wisdom Teeth Removal For All Ages
Wisdom Teeth Removal Tulsa and Broken Arrow Trust
Wisdom teeth are molars found at the very back of your mouth. They are called wisdom teeth because they usually do not come in until the age of 17-21 – an age old enough to have gained some “wisdom”. Young adults typically have their wisdom teeth removed towards the end of high school or in their college years, however some patients keep wisdom teeth their whole lives. There are many reasons to have them removed.Make an Appointment
Reasons to Have Your Wisdom Teeth Removed
At Stonewood Hills OMS, each patient is unique but if you have a small jaw you are more likely to need wisdom teeth removal. Because there is less room for the wisdom teeth to come in, they can get stuck (impacted) in your jaw. An impacted wisdom tooth can crowd other teeth and create painful, swollen, and infected flaps in your gums.
You do not need to wait until you are in pain to have your wisdom teeth removed. In fact, it is better to be proactive and have them removed before the age of 25. Additionally, the surgery is easier and your healing time is faster because you are younger and healthier. Many patients who wait until they are 40 years old have problems like diabetes or high blood pressure that complicate the surgery. We recommend getting your wisdom teeth removed as soon as feasibly possible.Request a Consultation
