Wisdom Teeth FAQs
Why do we have wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are simply a third set of molars that develop and erupt later than the others. However, not everyone has them. Comprehensive X-rays taken throughout your childhood will determine whether you have wisdom teeth or not.
What is the cost of wisdom teeth removal?
The cost of your procedure depends heavily upon the type of extraction you need and your insurance coverage. During your first appointment, we’ll take all necessary X-rays to plan out your wisdom teeth removal and go over your financial options.
What happens after a tooth extraction?
Your mouth will need some time to heal and we recommend taking off at least two days from work or school. Our team will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions for eating, hygiene, and medication. While the discomfort will subside after a few days, it will take several weeks for your extraction site to completely close.
