Orthodontic surgery can also help with impacted wisdom teeth. The surgical procedure can uncover wisdom teeth so that the surgeon can decide whether to remove them. It may also be the right choice for extracting partially erupted wisdom teeth because of how difficult they are to keep clean, which makes them a breeding ground for bacteria.
Impacted wisdom teeth can also put stress on other teeth, so removing them is usually the best choice. When you schedule a consultation with us, we’ll help you decide whether it’s the right option.
