Removing Wisdom Teeth

Approximately 90% of people get their wisdom teeth removed. In some cases, wisdom teeth surgery isn’t necessary, but more often than not, it’s recommended to prevent additional problems and pain in the future.

Normally, people have four wisdom teeth and they will all be removed at the same time for most patients. Wisdom teeth surgery can sound daunting, but Colorado Wisdom Teeth Center strives to provide a straightforward process for our patients. Read more about how to know if you should have your wisdom teeth removed, the step-by-step process, the cost of the surgery and aftercare below.
