Expert Wisdom Teeth Removal in Santa Fe, NM
Wisdom teeth, also called third molars, usually arrive in the mid-teen to young adult years. When they arrive, wisdom teeth almost always need to be extracted. There simply isn’t room for these new molars, and wisdom teeth can push other teeth out of alignment and crowd your mouth if they are allowed to erupt.
Furthermore, wisdom teeth are situated in the very back of your mouth. It is challenging to reach them with a toothbrush and floss. Their location means that wisdom teeth are prone to decay and even possible infection.
Dr. Fonseca can extract these potentially troublesome teeth using anesthetic and anti-anxiety medications to ensure your comfort. You will receive comprehensive aftercare instructions and will soon be feeling great again. If you’re concerned about wisdom teeth, please call Fonseca Dentistry at (505) 438-8088. We will be happy to schedule a consultation.
