Wisdom Teeth Reviews
Wisdom teeth are the last molars to erupt into the mouth, and they tend to cause problems as they begin to grow in. On average, a person's mouth is too small to accommodate wisdom teeth, which means instead of growing in properly, they grow in crooked, force your other teeth into misalignment, or cause more serious issues like cysts and tumors. At Amarillo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we recommend early wisdom teeth removal to prevent these problems.
Wisdom teeth removal is recommended between the ages of 12 and 25; this is the best time for removal because the teeth haven't had a chance to develop fully and are therefore easier to extract. At younger ages, wisdom teeth removal may be a patients' first encounter with surgery. We want to ensure that if that is the case, our patients (and parents of our patients) feel comfortable with treatment, which is why we offer the video testimonials below. Each video features a patient discussing how easy the process was and how glad they are that they chose our office for treatment. We encourage you to watch these videos to ease any anxiety you may have.
