Impacted wisdom teeth are third molars at the back of the mouth that don’t have enough room to emerge or develop normally. Sometimes a wisdom tooth becomes stuck below the surface of your gums (impacted), and grows at an odd angle, possibly causing complications. Nine out of 10 people have at least one impacted wisdom tooth and, if left untreated, impacted teeth can damage neighboring teeth, become infected and even transfer bacteria into the bloodstream.
At Prestige Oral Surgery, we specialize in removing impacted wisdom teeth and regular wisdom teeth. The best place to start is setting up a brief consultation with Dr. Erakat (Oral Surgeon), and taking x-rays to get a good look at your situation.
Call the office of Dr. Mohammed Erakat @ 732-297-7000 to schedule a consultation.
