We all know that for most people, wisdom teeth need to be removed in order to prevent serious dental problems! But have you ever wondered, what exactly is a wisdom tooth? Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that typically grow in during a person’s late teens/early twenties. Why are they called “wisdom” teeth?…

Dental implants have revolutionized the way dentistry is practiced. They provide a foundation for tooth replacement that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. You can regain the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that your teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. You can smile again with confidence with your new dental implants.
Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies, or is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants. In these situations, many patients require adjunctive bone grafting prior to or simultaneously with the placement of dental implants.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. When they align properly and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. They may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum and even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone. Impacted teeth can take many positions in the bone as they attempt to find a pathway that will allow them to erupt successfully.
