At Espili Dental we are happy to provide wisdom tooth removal in South Houston and can provide an evaluation of your wisdom teeth, smile, and overall oral health to determine if you should have your wisdom teeth removed.

Why Early Removal of Wisdom Teeth is Preferable

When it comes to removing wisdom teeth, it is important to do it sooner rather than later for the most successful procedure. When the roots to wisdom teeth are not as established it can make the removal of them much easier and safer, leading to less damage to the surrounding tissues in the mouth. As patients age more, wisdom teeth extraction can be much more complex, making recovery often much more difficult and the risk of complications much higher.

The Wisdom Teeth Extraction Process

During the wisdom tooth removal, your dentist will create an incision to completely remove your wisdom teeth. In some cases, the wisdom teeth may need to be broken prior to removal, then the teeth will be gently removed.
