The best age for wisdom teeth extraction

Wisdom teeth will typically grow into the mouth between ages 18-25. ALL dental patients should be thoroughly examined by a competent dentist to discover the need for their extraction and the risk of not doing so. Too many adults have unnecessarily suffered irreparable damage from the over-retention of wisdom teeth. This x-ray shows impacted maxillary and mandibular wisdom teeth. 2) Photo of the lower impacted wisdom tooth partially submerged below the gums and leaning against the otherwise healthy second molar. This will frequently cause dental caries and gum problem around the second molar over time.

Wisdom teeth extraction mistake

Mistaken removal of the wrong tooth. This patient had recently moved to NYC from Seattle. She brought prior radiographs and an interesting story. 1) In Seattle the patient was referred to an oral surgeon for the removal of wisdom tooth #1 but tooth #2 the second molar was mistakenly extracted instead. 2) The x-ray taken after the extraction of #2 shows tooth #1 is still present. 3) This new, less clear xray was taken a year later in Seattle but the wisdom tooth #1 can be seen moving down into the second molar position on its own. 4) This xray was the first of the series taken in our office. The wisdom tooth #1 has almost fully erupted on its own after about two and a half years. Ironically the patient was billed for and did pay for the removal of the wrong tooth.
