Wisdom Teeth Removal in Birmingham, AL
Your wisdom teeth, also called your third molars, are the last teeth to erupt in your mouth. That’s why we call them wisdom teeth—they usually emerge after we’ve matured, in the mid to late teens. But our modern diets have changed our mouths, meaning that most people’s wisdom teeth do not have room to grow in proper alignment.
Poorly positioned wisdom teeth lead to a host of oral health complications. The pressure they place on other teeth often disrupts our natural bite pattern, which can lead to issues like crooked teeth, chronic headaches, gum disease, and tooth decay. Impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth can cause significant pain and lead to infections, cysts, or tumors.
If your dentist has recommended an evaluation for wisdom tooth extraction, call Gonzalez, Carr & Maniscalco. Our state-of-the-art surgery center uses only the most advanced imaging tools, surgical techniques, and anesthetic monitoring equipment to ensure your full safety and optimum recovery.
