Wisdom Teeth Contribute To Infection, Jaw Pain and Crooked Teeth

wisdom-teeth-x-rayDid you know that oral surgeons recommend getting your wisdom teeth removed between the ages of 17-25?! Patients in this age group typically have good overall health and experience a faster recovery time, when compared to those over the age of 30. Early evaluation and treatment will help to ensure the best possible outcome for the patient.

An oral examination and review of your x-ray by our surgeons can help determine if now is the right time to have your wisdom teeth removed. The benefits of getting your wisdom teeth out can help decrease the chances of tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease as well!

Signs you may need your wisdom teeth removed:

  • Pain in the gums, jaw or mouth
  • Swelling of the gums
  • Repeated infections

Our office can provide multiple options for anesthesia that will offer maximum pain management and comfort. Your surgeon will recommend the anesthetic option that is best for you prior to your surgical procedure.

We offer 5 offices conveniently located Fairfax, Burke, Reston, Centreville or Woodbridge to schedule an appointment.
