At La Mesa Hills Dentistry, we work closely with our patients to identify their needs and monitor the progression of their wisdom teeth. Before you make any decisions, we will discuss with you the best course of treatment. Some reasons people have their wisdom teeth removed include pain, infection, and damage to neighboring teeth. Other less common reasons include cysts, tumors, gum disease and tooth decay. Sometimes people have wisdom teeth removed as part of their treatment for braces or other dental care.
