At Smile Artisans we use the latest in high tech specialty materials for cavity repairs. Our tooth colored’ composite resins look and feel like natural tooth material.

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt from the gums as people mature, Usually appearing far back in the gums between the ages of 16 and 22. Many patients experience difficulty, because their jaws are simply too small to accommodate these new teeth Causing Pain, swelling, and at times infections
In addition, impaction of teeth can occur, (teeth becoming trapped between the jaw/gum tissues.)
Over time these conditions can lead to problems with a patient’s bite as well as both decay and bad breath. As part of Smile Artisan’s regular checkups, DR. GUTIERREZ examines the growth and development of wisdom teeth and their impact on the patient’s whole mouth.
Should it be necessary, the doctor will recommend extraction of one or more of these teeth to allow space in the mouth and to help ensure overall good dental health.
