Wisdom teeth are a person’s third and final set of molars. They typically emerge into the mouth during the late teenage to early adult years. Most modern smiles simply do not have the space to accommodate these tardy teeth, which leads to dangerous overcrowding, a higher risk of infection, and even impaction (when the tooth becomes trapped in the jawbone).
At Mark L. Voltarel, DMD, PA, our team will keep a close eye on these developing teeth in younger patients with the help of digital X-ray technology. If we determine that concern is on the horizon, Dr. Voltarel can perform a wisdom tooth removal as a way to keep their smile safe and strong.
