Wisdom Teeth Extraction at our Wilmington DE office

Removal of wisdom teeth is advisable when they do not have adequate space to erupt properly into the mouth and have healthy surrounding gum tissue. They may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum and even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone (impaction). Impacted teeth can take many positions in the bone as they attempt to find a pathway that will allow them to erupt successfully.
