Wisdom Teeth Removal in Henderson, NV
Remove Third Molars Safely
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to come in. However, most people do not have the room for extra teeth, and complications due to wisdom teeth are common. Since they are not needed for proper bite, oral function, and oral health, and because they often cause problems, many dental professionals recommend wisdom teeth removal.
The oral surgeons at Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery specialize in wisdom teeth removal and perform this common procedure at their state-of-the-art practice in Henderson, NV. When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Falk, Dr. Moody, or Dr. Yau will perform an evaluation, review and order any diagnostic scans, and create a treatment plan. Your options for anesthesia will also be discussed during this appointment.
About Wisdom Teeth Removal
Dental health professionals, like dentists and oral surgeons, recommend removing wisdom teeth before complications occur. Since wisdom teeth usually erupt between the ages of 17 and 25, removing wisdom teeth during the early to mid-teen years is an ideal time for many patients. Your dentist will monitor the growth and development of your child’s wisdom teeth and will refer you to an oral surgeon for extraction at the right time.
Impacted wisdom teeth are trapped beneath the gum and are unable to erupt properly. Impacted wisdom teeth are common and can cause a number of issues, red and swollen gums, infection, and cysts and tumors.
Other complications of untreated wisdom teeth include pain, dental crowding, dental shifting, tooth decay, and more.

Your Oral Health Matters
Wisdom teeth problems are extremely common. These complications can range in severity, and correctional treatment can be costly. However, these issues can be avoided entirely if removed early enough. In general, patients who get their wisdom teeth out during their teen years usually have an easier procedure and recovery. This is because the wisdom teeth are still undeveloped, and younger patients tend to heal faster.
Removing wisdom teeth before problems arise is often seen as an investment in your or your child’s future oral health. Contact one of our practices to schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified oral surgeons to learn more about wisdom teeth removal.
