Dr. Keadle discusses wisdom teeth extractions on The Wellness Hour
Tooth extractions and wisdom tooth removal
For patients experiencing advanced decay, gum disease, infection that won’t go away, impaction, traumatic injuries or other issues, a tooth extraction may be necessary. With over 30 years of experience and having performed thousands of surgeries, Dr. Keadle will safely and gently extract your teeth or wisdom teeth with maximum patient comfort.
Your third molars (more commonly known as wisdom teeth) are the last adult teeth to arrive in the mouth. More often than not, wisdom teeth lead to potentially serious problems, such as partial or full impaction (trapped within the jawbone) or harmful overcrowding.
Wisdom teeth do not always pose an issue for patients. However, in the event that a wisdom tooth causes pain, becomes impacted, or interferes with the alignment of your bite, an extraction may be needed.
