Wisdom teeth are the final set of teeth to develop and commonly reach full development by a patient’s early 20s. At Star Valley Oral Surgery, our oral surgeon specializes in extracting wisdom teeth and has years of training and experience. Not everybody needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but the best way to find out is to visit an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for a consultation.
Should I have my wisdom teeth removed?
Everyone’s wisdom teeth develop at different rates and can appear at any age, from the early teens to the early 20s. Often, wisdom teeth don’t show any symptoms until they start causing problems. The best way to keep track of their growth is to visit your general dentist for routine cleanings. Your dentist is trained to look for signs of wisdom teeth growth and can recommend you to our oral surgery office when it’s time for your removal procedure. Wisdom teeth removal is one of the most common surgeries performed by Dr. Gregory McGee.
