Wisdom Teeth Removal
"Two's company, but three's a crowd" aptly sums up why many people end up having their wisdom teeth removed.
If your mouth lacks room for this third set of molars, they can end up trapped under the gums or come in at the wrong angle.
If you need wisdom teeth removed, Dr. Jason Streeter at Streeter Dental in Colorado Springs, CO, specializes in pain-free dentistry.

How Wisdom Teeth Cause Problems
Some People Remove Wisdom Teeth Before They Cause Problems
Sometimes a dentist, identifying potential problems with wisdom teeth on an x-ray, may recommend removing your wisdom teeth as a preventative measure.
Doing an extraction when you are young and before the jawbone has fully developed can make the process easier. Plus, young people tend to heal faster. Acting before problems occur allows teens to schedule treatment when it's convenient, such as during spring break or over the summer.
