Impacted wisdom teeth can potentially cause many problems and may need to be removed when they are the source of:
- Damage to adjacent teeth
- Gum disease
- Extensive tooth decay
Scientific literature supports and our surgeons advocate for the early removal of problematic or potentially problematic wisdom teeth in teenagers and young adults. Among the many reasons for this approach is that extractions at this stage of life are usually simpler and patients typically experience a shorter recovery time and are at a much lower risk for complications.
Beyond the age of 40, elective removal of any remaining wisdom teeth is not always necessary or recommended unless they are causing pain, have become infected, or have other diseases/pathologies associated with them. Whatever the case may be, patients of all ages can rely on the expertise of Dr. Terezides as well as the evaluation and treatment recommendations for developing, impacted or erupted wisdom teeth. Our Lake Nona oral and maxillofacial surgery experts also specialize in Lake Nona dental implants.
