Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. When they align properly and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. For more information about wisdom teeth or to schedule a consultation appointment, call our offices at Clayton Office Phone Number 314-726-2755 (Clayton) or 314-921-1129 (Florissant).
