When your mouth has 32 teeth and can only hold 28, trust Dr. Timothy Hopkins and his experienced staff at Idaho Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery to bring you relief.
The average 18-year-old adult has 32 teeth, 16 on the top and 16 on the bottom. Each tooth has a specific function and pose no problem when properly aligned. But because the average adult mouth can only hold 28 teeth, wisdom teeth typically don't align properly because they are the last to push through your gums. Removing your wisdom teeth promotes healthy teeth and gums and decreases pain, stiffness and swelling.
Using the latest dental technology and equipment, Dr. Hopkins will properly assess your wisdom teeth and determine if extraction is necessary.
