Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth are large molars located in the back of the mouth. Excellent food grinders, wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to form in a person’s mouth, and they are prone to come in misaligned and can crowd adjacent teeth. Issues arise when the placement of a wisdom tooth impairs and causes damage to neighboring teeth. The mis-positioning can be responsible for bone loss, or inhibiting the removal of bacteria and plaque which overtime will cause cavities, which can lead to teeth, jaw, or bone damage.

When there is a need to have wisdom teeth removed, our dentists provide patients with the oral surgery necessary to eliminate and correct problems caused by errant growing wisdom teeth. This is a routine dental procedure and is available to all patients at Menomonie Street Dental.
