Although most people develop and grow 32 permanent adult teeth, many times their jaws are too small to accommodate the four wisdom teeth. When inadequate space prevents the teeth from erupting they are called impacted wisdom teeth. This indicates their inability to erupt into the proper position for chewing and cleaning.
Welcome to Arctic Oral Surgery. Oral Surgeon Leonardo Rios-Andersen, DMD specializes in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery including Dental Implants, Bone Grafting, Wisdom Teeth Removal, Pre-Prosthetic Surgery, Tooth Extractions, and Oral Biopsies (Oral Pathology).
We will need to see you for a consultation to determine if you will benefit from wisdom tooth removal. A special x-ray of your mouth and jaws (panorex) will be taken to determine if your wisdom teeth are impacted, if there is room for them to erupt, and how difficult it will be to have them removed.
