Why Wisdom Teeth Removal?
If they actually gave you intellectual power, they may be worth keeping, but in most cases, your mouth is better off without wisdom teeth. Discomfort, crooked surrounding teeth, and cavities are all potential risks that come in with your wisdom teeth and are better to avoid. At K. Luke Eades DDS, we’re on a mission to make sure our patients enjoy strong and sparkling smiles over the long term, which is why we keep our eye on these mightily named molars.
