At Plaza Family Dental in Peoria, AZ, we focus on providing our patients with effective and compassionate care. Two common procedures we perform are wisdom teeth removal and tooth extractions, which can be integral to protecting and improving a patient’s overall oral health.
Why do wisdom teeth sometimes need to be removed?
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. While some wisdom teeth grow in without any issues, many patients experience pain, infection, and other complications. In these cases, removing wisdom teeth is often necessary to eradicate pain and reduce the risk of future dental issues.
