Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are commonly problematic. The four additional molars appear last, usually between the ages of 17 and 25, and there is often little room left on an adult’s dental ridges to accommodate them.
When wisdom teeth become impacted by nearby molars, they will continue to grow against the tooth. This can lead to intense discomfort, cause damage to surrounding teeth, and result in a misaligned bite.
To alleviate the discomfort and protect the rest of your teeth, we can perform wisdom tooth extraction to remove the extra set of molars. Unlike other extracted teeth, wisdom teeth do not need to be replaced, and many patients even choose to remove them before they cause trouble, to avoid complications in the future.
The extraction of wisdom teeth is usually effective to avoid the following:
- The crowding of the posterior teeth.
- A wisdom tooth that is stuck in the jaw (retained) and that never comes out through the gums.
- Gums reddened, swollen and painful because of a flap of skin around a wisdom tooth that has only partially come out.
- Gum disease and tooth decay in the wisdom tooth, which may be harder to clean than other teeth, or in the teeth and jaw in the area of the wisdom tooth.
