Wisdom Teeth Removal
Typically, your wisdom teeth occur when you have just erupted your third molars. Your other teeth are often affected by them, such as being misaligned or infected. A wisdom tooth extraction can be done when this occurs to avoid damage to your oral health and to maintain your bright smile.
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are typically the last teeth to come in. Because they are the last to erupt, there is often not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in as they should. When there is not sufficient space for the wisdom teeth, they may become impacted (unable to fully break through the gum tissues and jawbone), or they may grow in at an incorrect angle. Wisdom teeth that do not erupt as they should can lead to several dental problems, such as:
- Inadequate orthodontic treatment or affecting the alignment of teeth
- The neighboring teeth are damaged
- Decay of the teeth
- Infections and inflammations of the gums and other tissues
- Cysts are formed
- Jawbone damage
