The wisdom teeth, or third molars as they are also known, were extremely useful for our caveman ancestors whose diet mostly consisted of tough roots and uncooked meats. Today, however, most modern people simply don’t have enough room for them in their mouth. When they start to come in, they can become stuck, put pressure on the nearby teeth, create pain, and even develop an infection if ignored. If you or your child are experiencing any issues due to the wisdom teeth, Dr. Ramsay can make them “disappear” at Evans Street Dental using a gentle procedure, saving you from having to visit an outside specialist for wisdom tooth extractions in McMinnville, OR.
