Wisdom Tooth Extraction near Windsor

Wisdom Tooth Extraction near Windsor

Wisdom teeth are the third or final set of molars that grow during the late teens or early 20s. If your teeth are misaligned, they can put much pressure on the neighboring teeth and even crowd the mouth, making it difficult for the wisdom tooth to erupt. When the wisdom tooth gets impacted or when there is inadequate space in the mouth, the dentists at Chapel Gate Dental will examine your general oral health and take X-ray to determine the exact condition of your wisdom tooth at clinic near Windsor. Based on our finding, we will recommend having them removed to avoid uncomfortable symptoms.
