Removal of all four wisdom teeth at once during the teenage years is the best treatment approach. However, it’s not too late to have the procedure as an adult.
Once wisdom teeth erupt they are difficult to clean which can generate a progressive disease that only stops by extracting the teeth. Access to hygiene significantly improves after the procedure. To reduce the danger of any possible problems the recommendation is to remove all wisdom teeth as soon as possible. The procedure is typically 20 to 30 minutes long, followed by 30 to 45 minutes of recovery before going home.

Partial Extraction Therapy / Coronectomy to Prevent Nerve Injury:
If the lower wisdom teeth are diagnosed to be in close proximity or intimate contact with the inferior alveolar nerve, a modified technique known as partial extraction therapy or coronectomy may be recommended. This approach prevents nerve injury during extraction that can result in partial or complete numbness of lip or chin areas and or other sensory disturbances. A cone beam CT scan is required for proper diagnosis and recommendation of this technique.
