For many people, removing wisdom teeth is the smart decision.

These are your third molars. They typically erupt when people are in the late teens or early 20s. Unfortunately, most people don’t have room in their jaws for these teeth to come in correct.

Impacted teeth can cause a variety of problems. On the plus side, your dental team at our Lubbock, TX practice can identify potential problems during your routine visits. We can let you know if a wisdom teeth extraction could spare you or someone you love from a lifetime of dental problems.
