Timing of Removal and Safety

Timing of Removal

Patients of all ages can have their wisdom teeth removed, though younger patients have a slightly lower rate of complications.


One of the traditional complications during wisdom teeth removal is injuring the nerves that give us sensation to the lower lip and chin (called Inferior Alveolar Nerve, IAN). Luckily, thanks to modern technology like 3D Imaging (Cone Beam CT, CBCT), we can see the exact anatomic relationship between the root tips of the wisdom teeth and the IANs. This allows us to modify the procedure in order to keep the IAN safe. At Elevation Center, the chance of injuring that nerve in a permanent fashion is extremely small (near 0%).
