What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars. Did you know that not everyone has wisdom teeth? Some people have none and some people only have a couple of them.
Why are wisdom teeth removed?
Wisdom teeth tend to cause trouble in the mouth. Pain, discomfort and irritability are all symptoms of problem wisdom teeth. They may cause crowding of other teeth, may be growing in at an odd angle, and may become painful as they erupt. We will take x-rays to evaluate your wisdom teeth. Dr. Larson in Eagle, Idaho, performs wisdom teeth extractions all the time, but when needed, he refers specific wisdom teeth cases to an oral surgeon.
