THE Wisdom Teeth Clinic

Best Care Available for Wisdom Teeth Extraction

On behalf of our doctors and staff, we want to extend our sincere congratulations on the recent arrival of your very own wisdom teeth. You did it! Your third molars are erupting (cue falling balloons and party poppers)!

Now, let’s take ’em out.

The Benefits of Wisdom Teeth Removal — Don’t Wait.

Wisdom teeth grow roots that fully develop by your mid-twenties. So, the best time to get them removed is in mid-teens to early 20’s, before they have fully taken root in your jaw. Removing fully grown and often tangled roots can have a higher risk of damaging nerves, bone, and nearby teeth.

So, what exactly are wisdom teeth?

Heard the saying, “Three’s a crowd?” That is especially true when it comes to your wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are your third set of molars that emerge in the back of your mouth, and they are usually an unwelcome guest.

Your first molars arrive around age six, the second around age 12, and the third molars in your late teens to early twenties. The first two sets of molars have plenty of room to erupt without getting in the way of the rest of your teeth, but the third molars do not. So, when it comes to sets of molars, three’s a crowd.

What is the cost of wisdom teeth removal?

The cost of a wisdom teeth extraction procedure is different for every patient. This is why we have a consultation with you prior to the surgery. This allows us to determine what the fee for the surgery will be and help you understand your insurance benefits.

Factors that affect wisdom teeth cost:

  • Anesthesia Used
  • Dental Imaging
  • Number of Teeth Extracted
  • Level of Impaction — how the teeth are situated in the gums

It costs more to wait.

The earlier the wisdom teeth are removed, the better. The roots have had less time to fully develop making for an easier and quicker surgery with lower fees. The price of not having them removed early may be more money (and pain) down the road, as extractions get more and more complicated with age.
