What age should I remove my wisdom teeth?
The best time to remove your wisdom teeth is between the ages of 15-21. Wisdom teeth aren't fully formed at this age and thus the tooth is smaller and easier to remove. At this age, the bone isn't as dense in this area, which also makes the teeth easier to remove. Recovery after the procedure is a lot easier at this age as well, since the teeth are easier to remove. Healing is a lot easier and that's the main reason Dr. Advani recommends removing teeth at this age.
It's best to schedule your wisdom tooth removal during a school break and no time will be missed from school. Make your appointment right here in Elk Grove Village today!
