What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are extra “third” molars that develop in the back of the mouth during the late teenage years. These teeth often do not have the proper space in the jaw needed to grow in properly, leading to impacted wisdom teeth. When these teeth become impacted, they do not fully erupt out of the jaw bone and can end up causing pain, damage surrounding teeth or cause infection. At Western Pennsylvania & Ohio Valley Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we are specialists at gentle and successful wisdom teeth extractions and can offer you or your children a gentle experience with our IV sedation services.  

Choosing a team of oral surgeons for your wisdom teeth extraction is the safe choice because we have the education and experience to handle complex surgeries and medical complications, should they arise. Wisdom teeth extraction is more advanced than standard tooth extraction since these teeth are positioned so far back in the jaw and they are often impacted. In most cases, we will have to surgically remove the teeth by separating the gums and bone, cutting the teeth into pieces for easy removal. Trusting a team of oral surgeons will ensure that the procedure goes as planned and our doctors are IV sedation certified to offer an experience you likely won’t even remember.
