During the late teen years and early 20’s, a third set of molars erupts, known as the wisdom teeth. Although everyone gets them, it is often not without complications. Often, the jaw is not large enough to accommodate another set of molars. As a result, dental problems develop, such as overcrowding and impactions. More than 10 million wisdom teeth are removed each year from dental complications. At San Antonio Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates, we routinely provide wisdom teeth extractions in San Antonio. After the removal of the teeth, you will need to follow strict aftercare instructions to ensure a successful recovery.
