We recommend removal of wisdom teeth for many reasons. However, if there is no problem and they are healthy and functional, they serve as useful teeth. Some of the reasons for extraction are: infection, decay, pain, relation to second molars, orthodontics, or recurrent gum infections. We can remove most third molars, but we will refer to an oral surgeon if I.V. sedation is required, or if there is a great risk for complication.
