Nearly 5 million Americans get their wisdom teeth removed each and every year. Though it's not a necessary surgery for all, it is for most. Not only does it reduce pain in the back of the mouth, but it also helps potentially dangerous dental problems, like crowding and infections, from occurring down the road.
Westminster Dental Care is proud to provide the very best wisdom teeth removal services near Westminster, CO - and beyond! We provide a range of wisdom tooth removal services, even extracting impacted teeth, right here, in-office!
Do My Wisdom Teeth Need To Be Pulled Out?
The wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, usually begin causing problems when they erupt - or attempt to erupt - in the teenage years. During this time, patients typically experience pain in the back of the mouth and may notice crowding or a change in the way their top and bottom teeth fit together.
When left untreated, wisdom teeth can cause the following dental conditions:
- Persistent tooth pain
- Damage to neighboring teeth
- Build-up of bacteria resulting in decay
Dr. McKnight, your local Westminster dentist, will use the latest dental imaging technologies to determine if wisdom tooth removal is right for you or your teen. We treat a range of complex cases including impacted wisdom teeth!

How Much Does Wisdom Teeth Removal Cost?
Your total wisdom tooth extraction cost will depend on the following:
