The furthest teeth in the back of your mouth and the last teeth to erupt are your wisdom teeth.
Why Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
It is best to remove them between the ages of 15-25 although removal can be performed before 14 or after 25 depending on the patient.
Dr. Farnad will perform a full oral exam and take a 3D CT scan (Xray) before removing your wisdom teeth. We will show you what way your wisdom teeth are erupting within your jawbones.
Removal of your wisdom teeth can be performed under local anesthesia, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), IV sedation. We will further discuss your anesthesia options, the risk and benefits of the procedure, and post- operative instructions during the consultation.
