Dr. George Bai and his dental team are happy to provide simple and effective wisdom teeth removal in Hamilton and to patients from the surrounding communities. Your wisdom teeth are the third and final molars, located at the very back of the jaw. Due to limited space, these teeth will often emerge crooked or remain impacted underneath your existing molars. Having your wisdom teeth removed is a very common procedure, often seen as an adolescent rite of passage. While most often occurring between the ages of 15-25, it is possible for problems with your wisdom teeth to occur at any age, so it is important to receive a checkup from a qualified dentist.
