Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Most people deal with wisdom teeth during their teens or twenties, but the truth is that these teeth can come in at any time during adulthood. If wisdom teeth have become a reality for someone in your home or even for you, call Grottoes Family Dentistry at 540-249-4242. Our team will schedule you for an appointment for a wisdom tooth extraction in Grottoes, Virginia, with our dentists, Dr. Dylan Hall or Dr. Spenser Briggs.
Wisdom teeth are the last molars on each side of the jaw. They are usually the last teeth to come in or erupt, usually between ages 16 and 20. Since they are the last of your permanent teeth to come in, there may not be enough room for them to grow in properly without becoming impacted or disturbing other teeth. Wisdom teeth that do not erupt properly can cause dental problems such as:
  • Disturbance to the alignment of your teeth
  • Damage to surrounding teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Damage to the jawbone
  • Tenderness, swelling and infection in the gums and other tissues in the mouth
  • Cysts
We recommend wisdom teeth removal to prevent these and more complications that can significantly affect your oral health. During your regular visits to our office, our dentists will evaluate your smile, check for signs of wisdom teeth eruption and determine whether you would benefit from wisdom teeth removal. During the procedure, our dentists and team will do everything we can to make your wisdom teeth removal as painless and pleasant as possible. We are dedicated to you and your oral health, and we want you to feel comfortable and confident in our care. If you want to learn more about wisdom teeth removal, please contact our office today to schedule an appointment with us!
