Wisdom Teeth Removal

The third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, are typically the last set of teeth to emerge. Their late arrival often leads to complications, as there is rarely enough space in the mouth for them to erupt properly. When wisdom teeth do not have enough room to grow, they can become impacted, meaning they are unable to fully break through the gum tissue and jawbone. Alternatively, they may grow at an incorrect angle, causing various dental issues.

Impacted or misaligned wisdom teeth can disturb the natural alignment of your teeth, potentially reversing the effects of previous orthodontic treatments. Additionally, they can damage neighboring teeth, creating problems that affect your overall oral health. One common issue is tooth decay, which occurs when wisdom teeth are hard to clean due to their position in the back of the mouth. This can lead to cavities and other dental issues.

Another serious concern is the risk of infection and inflammation in the gums surrounding the wisdom teeth. This can result in pain, swelling and difficulty in chewing or speaking. In some cases, cysts may form around the impacted wisdom teeth, which can damage the jawbone and nearby teeth if left untreated.

To prevent these complications and maintain your oral health, our dentists may recommend wisdom teeth removal. This procedure involves a thorough evaluation of your dental condition, including the positioning of your wisdom teeth. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that your wisdom teeth removal is as painless and comfortable as possible. We use advanced techniques and anesthesia options to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
