At some point in their lives, most people will need to have their wisdom teeth removed. A wisdom tooth, also called a third molar, can grow sideways or become trapped under the gums. It can also become infected, decayed or cause the rest of your teeth to move out of place.
At South Boston Dental Associates, our team of surgeons have performed thousands of wisdom teeth extractions. Most wisdom teeth surgery procedures go very well, take less than an hour, and can be done right in our offices. Before removing your wisdom teeth, we’ll walk you through every step of the procedure and answer all your questions about wisdom teeth extraction.
