At Midwest Oral Surgery, we provide advanced and comprehensive oral and maxillofacial surgical services for patients across Missouri. This includes wisdom teeth removal. Wisdom teeth do not necessarily have to be removed; however, in many cases, it is better for oral health and hygiene to remove the four third molars known as wisdom teeth.
Your third molars are usually the last to develop, which is why they are called your "wisdom teeth." In most cases, they are finished emerging by your mid-teens to early twenties. The average human mouth is able to hold 28 teeth. Your 4 wisdom teeth make 32. If your jaw does not have room for your wisdom teeth, these teeth may be prevented from emerging completely, blocked by the tissue and / or the jawbone. This is known as "impaction." Our South County wisdom teeth oral surgeons can evaluate your mouth to determine if your wisdom teeth require removal.
We have offices throughout St. Louis and surrounding areas, including O'Fallon, Chesterfield, Festus, Wentzville, St. Louis, South County, and Troy. We are personable and caring, dedicated to the whole patient experience. Learn more about our oral surgery and extraction services by calling today for a consultation.
