Wisdom teeth, a third and final set of molars that many folks get in their late teens or early 20s, often negatively affect your oral health. But do you know why?
Watch this video from the American Dental Association to find out more. In some cases, your wisdom teeth can have an adverse impact on the teeth around them. Also, they often make it tough to practice good oral hygiene habits.
For these reasons, we may recommend removing them. The good news is, in the hands of an experienced dentist, extracting wisdom teeth isn’t much more complicated than removing any other teeth! In her 22 years as a dentist, our Dr. Jennifer Perkins has performed numerous wisdom teeth extractions.
