Wisdom teeth: Most adults have four, they usually show up around ages 16 to 25, and they can be a huge inconvenience. They commonly come in impacted, or sideways, which affect the other teeth in your mouth. Not only is this a painful development, but it can be detrimental to your physical appearance and health! That is why wisdom teeth are often extracted. At our Brooklyn Oral Surgeon office, Dr. Marc B. Hertz is a highly respected and experienced oral surgeon who has been serving the needs of patients in the Brooklyn community for over eleven years. You can trust Dr. Hertz to treat your dental issues with the utmost quality and care available. Wisdom teeth extraction is often a necessary procedure, and knowing you are in the hands of a caring and trained oral surgeon makes that process a breeze.
There are many reasons to get those pesky wisdom teeth removed. Sometimes they are removed after you start feeling pressure or pain in the jaw, but it is often smart to remove them as a smart precaution. Even if you aren’t experiencing problems now, wisdom teeth can unexpectedly emerge and cause problems at any inconvenient moment. Our Brooklyn Oral Surgeon will work with you to figure out and discuss all your options. It can be wise to plan an extraction at a time of your convenience. For example many younger patients opt for removal before leaving for college. In some cases, the teeth may be emerging, or have already broken through the gum! This can be extremely painful, and if left untreated, more complications can arise and diseases can fester.
Some studies say that around 60 to 70 percent of patients with wisdom teeth will eventually have issues with them.
