What Are “Wisdom Teeth?”

wisdom teeth placementThe third molars, more commonly known as “wisdom teeth,” derive their name from the fact that they tend to erupt in patients at a much later age than the other teeth. These teeth tend to surface in most patients between the ages of 15 and 25, and over time, they can begin to cause a variety of problems. Since there is little room in the mount for wisdom teeth, they can cause the following medical problems if they are not removed:

  • Overcrowding of teeth
  • Cyst formation
  • Damage to surrounding teeth
  • Oral infection

Patients who have their wisdom teeth removed at a younger age are far less likely to experience medical complications than patients who have them removed at a later age.

The Tooth Removal Process

Here at Summit Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we understand the idea of having your teeth surgically removed can be intimidating. However, we are fully committed to providing you with the best care possible so you can recover quickly and return to your daily life. Our hospital-trained Michigan oral surgery professionals will provide you with medication to reduce pain and swelling prior to your procedure.

During your procedure, you may need dissolvable stitches, which will dissolve on their own two to five days later. Since the effects of the anesthesia may still be strong after the surgery, you must be accompanied by an adult (a person at least 18 years old) who will be responsible for diving you home.
