Goodbye Wisdom Teeth

Experience personalized, patient-friendly wisdom teeth removal.

Why choose the Carnes Wisdom Teeth Team?

We believe patients deserve gentle, fast, and affordable surgery. Our extensive experience with wisdom teeth extractions has helped us make the entire process easier, more comfortable, and more convenient for patients.

Why are wisdom teeth removed as a preventative procedure?

Wisdom teeth have a tendency to become impacted while negatively affecting other teeth and potentially creating other long-term oral health issues. Because of these concerns, more than 10 million wisdom teeth are removed in the United States each year and approximately 60 percent of these surgeries aren’t necessary at the time.

Do I need to be referred to the Carnes Wisdom Teeth Team?

Nope. If you are not a Carnes patient, simply contact us to schedule a complimentary consultation.

Why shouldn't I wait on wisdom teeth removal?

We recommend wisdom teeth removal for patients in their late teens to early twenties. If you wait too long for wisdom teeth removal, your jawbone and teeth begin to set. As they get harder, wisdom teeth are even more difficult to remove and the procedure becomes more painful and complex.

  • Jaw joint pain or aches
