Wisdom Teeth Removal

We Treat All Patients Like Family

Your third molars are the last to emerge, which is why they are called your wisdom teeth. Often, however, there is not enough room in the mouth for four wisdom teeth. Many people opt to have their wisdom teeth removed. If you decide to pursue removal of your wisdom teeth, call Midwest Oral Maxillofacial & Implant Surgery for the best care. You can rely on us for skilled St. Louis wisdom tooth removal and state of the art care. We treat all patients like family at our oral surgery offices.

Why Are Wisdom Teeth Removed?

The average jaw fits 28 teeth. When your third molars / wisdom teeth come in, you will have 32 teeth total. This can compromise your oral health and hygiene. In some situations, wisdom teeth are impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth should be extracted before their root system finishes developing.

What Happens If I Don't Remove My Wisdom Teeth?

You are more likely to experience complications if you do not have your wisdom teeth removed by age 30. In addition, the longer you wait, the more complicated and difficult the surgery will be, as roots extend and the jawbone increases in density. Post-surgery recovery is also less fast and straightforward.

Complications of delayed wisdom teeth extraction or failure to extract wisdom teeth may include:

  • Formation of cysts
  • Infection
  • Teeth crowding
  • Damage to adjoining teeth
