What is wisdom teeth removal?

Wisdom teeth removal is the extraction of the third molars. The third molars, commonly known as the wisdom teeth, are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth. There is often not enough room for the wisdom teeth to properly come in, and they may erupt at an incorrect angle. If the wisdom teeth become impacted (stuck in the jawbone and gum tissue) or erupt at an angle, we may recommend wisdom teeth removal in Logan, Utah.

Do I need to get my wisdom teeth removed?

Dr. Brandon Schvaneveldt will determine whether your wisdom teeth should be removed. If your wisdom teeth are not removed and do not erupt properly, it may lead to several serious dental problems, such as:

  • Infection in the gums
  • Damage to the adjacent teeth
  • Formation of a cyst
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay

Our caring dentist and dental team will ensure that your wisdom teeth removal is as painless and comfortable as possible. We encourage you to closely follow the instructions provided by our dentist following the extraction.
