What do the body’s appendix, spleen, gallbladder and wisdom teeth all have in common? They’re body parts you can live without — holdovers from earlier times in our evolutionary development. In the case of wisdom teeth, the human mouth has become smaller over the millennia because we no longer need sharp, tough teeth to break down the meats we eat. So now, wisdom teeth, which are usually last to descend, find themselves fighting for space, in turn pushing other teeth out of alignment, or causing the wisdom teeth themselves to become impacted.
Bottom line: these “intruders” have got to go…but not always. If your wisdom teeth do not cause you discomfort or produce any other dental issues, there’s no need to have them removed. But for most people, that’s not the case.
At the office of Sunset Park Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we want to ease your pain and ensure your dental health at all stages of your life. Count on our skilled oral surgeons to evaluate your case and decide what course of action is best. Should your teeth require extraction, be confident that the process will be expertly performed and we will do our utmost to keep you comfortable and relaxed during the process.
