Most adults have four wisdom teeth that typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. These are located at the back of the mouth and commonly affect other teeth as they develop, causing issues that range from minor discomfort through to severe pain. When there is insufficient room for the wisdom teeth to develop properly, they can erupt at an angle and get stuck against an adjacent tooth. Referred to as ‘impacted’, this will require professional treatment to correct.
At V Care Dental, we offer wisdom teeth treatments for patients of all ages, including affordable wisdom teeth removal. Our dentists can take x-rays that show the position of the root, allowing them to assess how difficult it will be to extract the tooth. Depending on the results, our dentists may decide to remove the tooth in a separate procedure.
