Wisdom Tooth Extractions – Houston, TX
Make Those Problem Teeth Disappear
Because wisdom teeth arrive in your mouth so much later than your other teeth, they often cause complications such as pain, overcrowding, and an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Dr. Palmer can recognize when your third molars are going to cause problems and remove them for you before the worst happens. If you or a loved one is around the age when the wisdom teeth usually erupt (17 to 25), get in touch with us to see if an extraction will be needed.

Do Wisdom Teeth Always Need to Be Removed?
While wisdom tooth extractions are very common, they’re not always necessary. A wisdom tooth that safely emerges from the gums and doesn’t crowd the other teeth can often be left alone. However, the position of wisdom teeth can make them hard to clean; if you can’t brush or floss the area well enough to prevent tooth decay and gum disease, an extraction might be the better solution. Don’t worry; Dr. Palmer will perform a very thorough checkup and consider the different options before recommending any kind of tooth extraction.
