Wisdom Teeth Extractions
When is Wisdom Tooth Extraction Really Necessary?
Dr. Langston may recommend having your wisdom teeth removed if:
- They are pressing on your back teeth.
- They have become trapped beneath the gum line, or impacted.
- They have created a flap in the gum tissue that accumulates food and bacteria.
- Are causing cysts to develop in the area.
- Are infected.
If you believe your wisdom teeth are causing you trouble, Dr. Langston will take some X-rays and let you know if an extraction is necessary.
