Wisdom Teeth




Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that emerge, usually during your late teens to early twenties. For some people the wisdom teeth emerge through the gums and have enough room to grow in naturally. For others, wisdom teeth often cause problems as they are trying to protrude through the gums. When a wisdom tooth is impacted the tooth is coming in at an angle and not straight through the gum line. This can cause pain, the tooth can come in unevenly, or the tooth may only emerge partially.

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause structural damage to the jaw and other teeth. They can also provide a place for bacteria to gather since they are hard to reach and clean. These potential problems make it necessary to remove impacted wisdom teeth so that larger problems do not arise. Routine x-rays during a dental exam can reveal if you will need to have your wisdom teeth removed.

Dr. Friz has sucessfully removed many wisdom teeth over the years, including severely impacted ones.  His externship at Long Hospital Oral Surgery Clinic plus many hours of continued training in surgery have equiped him with the knowlege and the skill to complete your special surgical needs.  You can feel at ease knowing that you will receive quality care at a reasonable cost.
