How to Address Wisdom Teeth That Are Impacted or Partly Erupted?

By Dr. Natalie Provenzano

Your wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last to emerge.

These teeth might get impacted due to the lack of space to erupt through the gums, giving patients pain as the wisdom tooth tries to appear.

If you live in San Jose, California, and have impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth,

you should consult Natalie K. Provenzano, DDS, Inc, about possible removal.

Depending on the position of the wisdom tooth at the time of removal,

we use oral surgery or simple extraction.

Dr. Simel is our in-house Oral Surgeon who has had substantial post-dental training.

He can perform routine extractions in addition to more complex surgical extractions and provide IV sedation for patient comfort.
