To help patients make the best choice about their oral health in terms of removing a tooth, we give them the options of what would be best and what the consequences are if they decide to remove a tooth. Sometimes it's absolutely necessary to wiggle out a tooth and and let the body heal up, but if there's other options, we want to educate our patients about the consequences of removing a tooth prematurely.
Sometimes they need to understand what will happen with their other teeth if we wiggle a tooth out. We want to provide education to our patients about oral surgery and how that can affect them positively, and maybe affect their teeth around it negatively. We want them to make the best informed decision. Oral surgery is a great option if the tooth absolutely needs to come out. We can help the patient do that. If it's going to be detrimental to other functions of the mouth or the teeth, that patients need to know about that, and we'll take time to educate them. We'll show them the 3D images of what's going to happen with this tooth as it comes out, what's going to affect the other teeth as you chew, and then we obviously want to give them options to replace that if they decide to move forward. Oral surgery is a great option.

Wisdom teeth are your third molars. They erupt in the back of your mouth. However, most people’s jaws are not large enough for these teeth to fully erupt. When this happens, they are considered impacted. These teeth are more likely to become diseased. They also raise your risk of gum disease.
