Wisdom Tooth Extraction
A common oral surgery that we recommend is the removal of your third row of molars, known as your wisdom teeth. Though it may not be necessary for everyone, we propose their removal for a majority of our patients for better health and the protection of your other teeth. Working with our staff at Chicago Dental Esthetics, we can evaluate the progression of your wisdom teeth and discuss your next steps.
