Teeth that often require removal are wisdom teeth, of course. These teeth are the third and last set of molars. Though not every person will require that their wisdom teeth be removed, those whose wisdom teeth have inadequate space to erupt properly will likely need to have them removed.

Following the removal of your tooth or teeth, it may be necessary to put a few stitches in the area. You will be sent home with some simple instructions to follow to help ensure that your mouth heals as it should.
