What if I don’t have my wisdom teeth removed as a teenager or young adult?

As wisdom teeth develop, the roots become longer and the jaw bone more dense. When it is necessary to remove impacted wisdom teeth in your thirties, forties or beyond, the post-operative course can be prolonged and there is a higher complication rate. Treating these complications is often more difficult and less predictable than with a younger patient. Healing may be slower and the chance of infection can be increased. If your impacted wisdom teeth are not removed in your teenage years or early in your twenties and they are completely impacted in bone, it may be advisable to wait until a localized problem (such as cyst formation or localized gum disease and bone loss) develops. In general, you will heal faster, more predictably and have fewer complications if treated in your teens or early twenties.

Patient Review by A R

The procedure was for my daughter but the staff and Dr. Bowman made everything comfortable and easy for my daughter. She had to go in alone, which was hard because she's 6 but she came out happy and excited to be done and a few days later said she didn't cry. The staff checked in on her later in the day and helped me understand a few things which I appreciated. Will definitely go back for any future procedures and will recommend for anyone looking.
