Wisdom Teeth Removal Washington DC
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. When they align properly, and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. It is necessary to remove wisdom teeth when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth.
These poorly positioned impacted teeth can cause many problems. Early removal of wisdom teeth is recommended to avoid any future problems and to decrease the surgical risk involved with the procedure.
