Your third molars are the last permanent teeth to erupt and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. They are commonly known as “wisdom teeth” because their development is typically completed between the middle teenage years and the early twenties, an age associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom. Our experienced oral surgeon and team provide treatments to remove wisdom teeth from your mouth so you can enjoy a healthier mouth and smile. We invite you to contact us at 718-745-6555 to learn more about wisdom teeth in Brooklyn, New York, and schedule your consultation with Dr. Chun Pae Cho.
When wisdom teeth erupt properly and have enough space in the mouth, they can help you chew and perform the same oral functions as your other teeth. Unfortunately, wisdom teeth rarely have enough space to erupt properly and often become impacted, or trapped, in the gumline or erupt at an incorrect angle. When this occurs, it can lead to many problems for your oral and overall health, including:
- Pain and discomfort
- Cysts and tumors
- Damage to neighboring teeth
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
Our oral surgeon will examine your mouth to monitor the development of your wisdom teeth and determine if extracting them is the right option for you. Give us a call today to find out more and schedule your appointment!
