The removal of wisdom teeth is a highly common procedure. Early wisdom tooth removal (late teens- early 20’s) has proven to be easier with a more rapid and comfortable recovery. The skill set of an oral and maxillofacial surgeon is a unique combination of dentistry, medicine and surgery. This collection of skills is never more valuable then when treating a patient for the removal of wisdom teeth. Choosing an oral surgeon with advanced and extensive surgical training is a crucial factor in the care and outcome that you receive.
