Wisdom teeth removal in Granada Hills

We offer comfortable and affordable wisdom tooth removal for children and teens. Early removal is recommended to avoid future complications such as infection and impaction.

 

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, emerge in the back of the mouth between the ages of 17 and 25. They are the very last teeth to develop and come in many years after the other adult teeth have erupted. Unfortunately, most people don't have adequate room in the mouth for wisdom teeth. This lack of space can cause impaction, disruption of other teeth, crowding, oral pain, infections, and more.

A pediatric dentist can predict whether or not upcoming third molars are going to be a problem. They will then consult with our oral surgeon to see if early removal might be beneficial for your child. Many people wait until adulthood to remove their wisdom teeth, but we recommend doing it earlier (around age 15) to prevent the above-mentioned issues from ever becoming a problem.
