Why Are Teeth Removed?
Wisdom TeethYour wisdom teeth, also called your third molars, are the last 4 of your 32 adult teeth to develop. They typically begin erupting in your late teen years or early 20s. While some people have no issues with their wisdom teeth, there are many people who are faced with significant complications as their wisdom teeth attempt to erupt. Problematic wisdom teeth need to be removed. Pacific Oral & Facial Surgery Center can help.

Impacted TeethYour teeth are an important feature of your mouth. While small, they have several important responsibilities. Children develop 20 temporary baby teeth. Eventually, the baby teeth fall out, and adult teeth begin to take their place. Adults develop a total of 32 permanent teeth. For most people, their teeth all come in without any issues. For others, however, they may be faced with an impacted tooth. Impacted teeth can cause significant issues. At Pacific Oral & Facial Surgery Center, we can help to treat impacted teeth and restore the health of your mouth.
