Some people are born without wisdom teeth. A simple X-ray will reveal whether you have wisdom teeth or not and whether they can be expected to cause problems for the neighboring teeth. If this is the case, extraction may be recommended.
The complexity of the procedure involved in wisdom teeth extraction depends on the degree to which the molars have been “impacted” or trapped underneath the second molars. Wisdom teeth orientation and alignment will need to be determined beforehand. A straightforward extraction can be done using a local anesthetic, but more complex cases may require surgery and sedation. In both cases, the utmost care will be taken to ensure that you are kept completely pain and discomfort-free.
