Wisdom Tooth Extractions – Springfield, PA
Don’t Let Third Molars
Ruin Your Smile
At one point in time, the wisdom teeth might have been necessary to help our ancestors chew particularly tough foods. Nowadays, however, they aren’t really needed. In fact, because they erupt so late in life, they can crowd your other teeth and put them at risk for decay and other health issues. If Dr. Hinebaugh believes that your wisdom teeth are going to cause problems, he’ll recommend an extraction as soon as possible. If there’s a young adult in your family who’s around the age when the wisdom teeth normally erupt (between 17 and 25), contact us for an appointment to see if an extraction might be needed in the near future.

Is a Wisdom Tooth Extraction Always Necessary?
Not everyone will need to have their wisdom teeth removed. Sometimes, the third molars are able to erupt without crowding or otherwise damaging the other teeth. As long as you can still brush and floss your wisdom teeth effectively, you should be able to keep them without issue. Of course, this typically won’t be the case; it’s often recommended to remove the wisdom teeth as soon as it seems like they could potentially cause problems.
