AAOMS Ebook on Wisdom Teeth

Medical and dental research have provided us with clear insight and scientific evidence of the benefits of early third molar, or wisdom tooth, removal. According to landmark, peer-reviewed studies, there is a 25% risk of silent periodontal disease in adolescents and young adults with retained third molars.

In persons older than 25, 33% will have periodontal disease associated with their third molar, and 40% will have cavities on their third molars. Periodontal or gum disease around the third molars decreases the lifespan of important first and second molars, and creates pockets which are impossible to clean and where bacteria thrive. This is not only bad for your oral health, but over time, can lead to increased levels of systemic or whole body inflammation which has been proven to lead to an increased incidence of serious medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, and certain types of cancer.

AAOMS Presentation on Wisdom Teeth Treatment

 

Wisdom teeth removal is a surgical procedure, and, like all surgical procedures, comes with inherent risks. Don’t trust your wisdom teeth surgery to just anyone! You and your loved ones deserve surgeons with the most advanced training and expertise in third molar surgery, the management of potential complications, as well as the safe administration of anesthesia. Our surgeons are Board Certified by both the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology, and have trained a minimum of 4-6-years in the hospital setting. We have over four decades of experience providing safe and expert care in the West Michigan area and we pride ourselves in providing the highest standards of surgical care in an empathetic manner and a comforting environment. We would be honored with the privilege of caring for you or your family.

I don’t know her name, (wish I did!) but Dr. Rivera’s assistant is so sweet, kind, and funny. She was so welcoming and accommodating. Give her a raise. She was also super cute.
