Your wisdom teeth are the teeth farthest in the back of your mouth, located in the upper and lower jaw; and dentists refer to them as 3rd molars. In many cases, the jaw is simply not large enough to accommodate the extra teeth, and they may become impacted, meaning they remain under the gum. The extraction of wisdom teeth is a common, and oftentimes necessary procedure, and can be done with IV sedation. If you need your wisdom teeth removed, call our office today. We’re happy to help.
