Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Impacted Wisdom Teeth – Peninsula Oral and Facial Surgery Impacted wisdom teeth are the third and final molars at the back of the mouth that don’t develop and erupt like other teeth. As the final teeth that come through in the mouth, impacted wisdom teeth can cause significant issues with the jaw, soft tissue, and existing healthy teeth. Symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth can range from pain and discomfort to severe infections that require medical intervention. When wisdom teeth are described as being impacted, they simply lack the space to grow naturally and without complication. If you or anyone in your family has impacted wisdom teeth, you can get reliable impacted teeth removal from the expert team at Peninsula Oral and Facial Surgery. Learn about the signs, symptoms, and treatment at your consultation with Peninsula Oral and Facial Surgery.
