Your dentist might recommend a consultation with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, like Dr. Robert Weinstein, in order to determine whether there is any disease present in your third molars. Some problems with wisdom teeth are only visible on an x-ray and problems can exist without any wisdom tooth pain or symptoms. Dr. Weinstein will do an examination and provide a diagnosis and plan for treatment if you need it. Some patients have wisdom teeth which are causing no problems with their dental health and have no disease or pathology. If Dr. Weinstein diagnoses disease in the third molars, he will recommend a wisdom tooth removal procedure.
