If you are between the ages of 17 and 25, it may be time to have your wisdom teeth removed.
1. Keeping your wisdom teeth can cause a number of health problems.
Very rarely do your wisdom teeth come in cleanly behind your second set of molars without any complications. In fact, wisdom teeth can cause infections, cysts, overcrowding, and more.
2. When it comes to wisdom tooth extraction—the earlier, the better!
It is often recommended to have your wisdom teeth removed as early as possible, as it reduces your risks for oral complications and can help to ease the recovery process.
3. Wisdom tooth extraction is quite common.
Research has shown that wisdom teeth grow in at an angle about 44 percent of the time, which can cause a number of problems for your surrounding teeth. Approximately 10 million molars are said to be removed in the United States every year!
4. You won’t feel any pain during your procedure.
In addition to numbing you Dr Moshos offers sedation therapy, making this procedure completely painless.

Eliminating the risk of overcrowding can prevent you from needing orthodontic treatment. Wisdom teeth are also quite difficult to clean properly. Wisdom teeth often collect bacteria, which would require further treatment. Treating all of these oral health issues can accumulate in expense over time. By removing your wisdom teeth, you save yourself a lot of money and frustration!
