When a tooth is poorly positioned, or impacted, it can cause great discomfort and will require extraction of the wisdom tooth. Extracting impacted wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth.
Upon scheduling a visit to Dental Surgery Virginia an oral examination and x-rays of the mouth will be completed. From there, Dr. Brown can evaluate the position of the wisdom teeth. Early evaluation and treatment will result in a superior outcome for the patient. Patients are generally first evaluated in the mid-teenage years by a dentist, orthodontist, or an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Outpatient surgery is performed under anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. Convenient and extended hours are provided at both our Fredericksburg and Chesterfield offices.
