Wisdom Teeth Removal

Most adults experience problems with their wisdom teeth that require their removal.

Wisdom teeth can lead to impaction, misalignment of surrounding teeth, and an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease. While wisdom teeth are not necessary for chewing or speaking, they can cause many problems if you do not remove them early. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons can help you avoid these problems and enjoy better oral health by removing your wisdom teeth. If you are experiencing wisdom tooth discomfort, Carolinas Centers for Oral & Facial Surgery in Charlotte offer wisdom tooth removal as a simple and effective way to improve your quality of life.
