New York Dental Practice Says Don’t Get Your Wisdom Teeth Removed Just Because Your Parents Did

Dr. William P. Caldon, D.M.D., co-owner of Plattsburgh’s High Peaks Dental, explains that while not all wisdom tooth extractions are necessary, it’s still a good idea for many dental patients.

Plattsburgh, NY — August 11, 2015 — Renowned Plattsburgh dentist Dr. William Caldon published a new article entitled “Do You Have To Get Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?” In the article, he suggests that readers avoid getting wisdom tooth extractions by default, and instead, talk with their dentist about the pros and cons before making a final decision.

William CaldonSays Caldon, “Despite conventional wisdom, wisdom tooth extraction is not always necessary. Many of us have seen our friends and family get their wisdom teeth removed, but that doesn’t mean you also have to. So why do so many people end up going through with the surgery? The answer has a lot to do with the problem-causing potential of wisdom teeth.

Dr. Caldon has been a co-owner of High Peaks Dental since 1996 after serving in the United States Air Force for 20 years and retiring as a Colonel. He received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Louisville and his Bachelor’s from Thomas More College. In 2013, USA Today featured Caldon as one of America’s Premier Dentists.
