Wisdom Teeth Extractions in Sugar Land, TX
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, usually start coming in after age 15 until age 20. Most of the time they are indicated for removal at a young age due to ease of removal and less complications. There are multiple reasons why they are removed including:
- Possible cyst formation around the teeth in the future
- Infection around the teeth due to poor gum tissue quality around the teeth
- Can compromise adjacent teeth due to positioning
- Poor cleanability
- Pain and pressure in the area
The procedure can be done under local anesthesia, nitrous, oral conscious sedation, or IV sedation administered by an MD anesthesiologist.
