Question No. 1: Why do I need to remove my wisdom teeth?
Answer: Wisdom teeth oftentimes cause more harm than good. This is because they can become impacted and they can infect or affect the surrounding teeth. They can also be very tough to clean, so they can cause dental issues in the long run.

Question No. 2: Will I be awake during treatment?
Answer: It depends on the treatment needs. If your case is complex, you will likely be asleep during treatment. If your case is simple, you will likely remain awake with a sedative to keep you calm and relaxed.
