Wisdom teeth are the last (3rd) set of molars that grow into an adult's jaw. Sometime before age 22, the teeth drop down and begin to show. You may ask, what do I even need these teeth for anyway?

Immediate Tooth Replacement As we age, our teeth become more brittle. As a result, fracture lines can form and teeth can break, frequently at the gum line. This process is accelerated if you have had a root canal or your teeth have been veneered or crowned. If this happens, many times it is not possible to save the tooth. As improbable as it sounds, it is sometimes possible to remove a single tooth, place a dental implant and within 2 days, have a natural appearing tooth attached to the implant. This is possible because of improved implant materials and design and our expanding knowledge of the biology of bone healing and implant integration. What this means for you is that should you have the unsettling experience of breaking a front tooth,...
