Although winter break on Long Island is a typical time of year for college and/or high school students to have their wisdom teeth evaluated and treated, it is also important for adults who still have their wisdom teeth to be evaluated, as well.
• Wisdom teeth removal is typically peformed during the mid-teenage years as to prevent future and more difficult complications, such as infection, nerve injury and delayed healing.
• Numerous substantiated medical studies have linked retained wisdom teeth with cardiac disease, so it's never too early or late to evaluate the status of your wisdom teeth.
