Wisdom teeth are oral vestiges of our prehistoric ancestors. They needed these rather large molars to chew tough meat, seeds and raw vegetation. Over the millennia, however, man’s eating habits have changed so these teeth are no longer necessary. In fact, most people don’t have room for them in their mouths. That’s why wisdom tooth extraction is so common. Dr. Jonthan E. Mason conveniently performs wisdom tooth surgery in Manchester Center, VT.

Wisdom teeth are the final set of adult molars that erupt in the late teen years and into the early 20’s. While many have no difficulty getting their wisdom teeth, many others need to have their wisdom teeth removed due to complications like impaction. With 5 million people having their wisdom teeth removed each year, it’s a common procedure with a very high success rate. As a Manchester Center Dentist, we offer wisdom tooth extraction surgery to resolve the complications your wisdom teeth are causing.
