Safe, gentle wisdom tooth extraction in our Albury and Wodonga SJ Dental.
Many people in their late teens or early 20s need to have their third molars (aka wisdom teeth) removed. Wisdom tooth removal (extraction) helps prevent problems associated with impacted wisdom teeth which can seriously affect your overall dental health.
Not everyone develops wisdom teeth problems, and some people don’t ever develop wisdom teeth. However, they do cause serious problems for many, which is why dentists recommend that those in their late teens have an x-ray to see the status of their wisdom teeth.
