What if I don’t have my wisdom teeth removed as a teenager or young adult?

As wisdom teeth develop, the roots become longer and the jaw bone more dense. When it is necessary to remove impacted wisdom teeth in your thirties, forties or beyond, the post-operative course can be prolonged and there is a higher complication rate. Treating these complications is often more difficult and less predictable than with a younger patient. Healing may be slower and the chance of infection can be increased. If your impacted wisdom teeth are not removed in your teenage years or early in your twenties and they are completely impacted in bone, it may be advisable to wait until a localized problem (such as cyst formation or localized gum disease and bone loss) develops. In general, you will heal faster, more predictably and have fewer complications if treated in your teens or early twenties.

I was very impressed at the professionalism of the doctor’s office. Everything was very clean and the staff made the visit feel like home. Once everything healed up, you could never tell that I had an issue. Thank you!

Patient Review

Having gone to another Doctor for information on what I needed to do with my loss of bone and some tooth extractions, I was overwhelmed with what and how he was going to do for me! The price was over the top and was a very painful experience... thank God I went to Dr. Moose who calmed me down and explained what he thought should be done. The extraction of 5 teeth and Putting in bone went so smoothly I never felt ANY PAIN! The staff was wonderful and assuring me how terrific he was... thanks again to Dr. Moose and his staff... I gave them a 5 star rating all around..
