Wisdom Teeth Removal
Orofacial & Dental Implant Surgery, where exceptional care and experience combine.
What if I don’t have my wisdom teeth removed as a teenager or young adult?
As wisdom teeth develop, the roots become longer and the jaw bone more dense. When it is necessary to remove impacted wisdom teeth in your thirties, forties or beyond, the post-operative course can be prolonged and there is a higher complication rate. Treating these complications is often more difficult and less predictable than with a younger patient. Healing may be slower and the chance of infection can be increased. If your impacted wisdom teeth are not removed in your teenage years or early in your twenties and they are completely impacted in bone, it may be advisable to wait until a localized problem (such as cyst formation or localized gum disease and bone loss) develops. In general, you will heal faster, more predictably and have fewer complications if treated in your teens or early twenties.

Patient Review by Doug W for Dr. Moore in Winter Garden
While this was my first visit/consultation appointment to date in this office. I did not hesitate to make my oral surgery appointment based on my overall positive experience during this initial visit. Everyone was very kind and professional and Dr. Antonos was extremely detailed in explaining my condition and next steps to get me back in shape. While I cannot say I am looking forward to my surgery, I do have ever confidence in my decision of having my required work done by this team. Thank you.
