Dental Conditions

It is common to find that the 3rd molar does not grow in line with the other teeth.  Sometimes this requires surgery to remove the tooth, particularly if it is surrounded by the bone in the jaw.  Occasionally the tooth can be left alone, but it is important to have a thorough exam with x-rays to determine the precise position of the tooth and whether it needs to be removed.
