Wisdom Teeth and Oral Surgery

Asd16

Wisdom teeth are often the very last of a patient’s teeth to come into the mouth. Most people will notice their wisdom teeth start to develop right before they enter adulthood. The unfortunate part about wisdom teeth is that it’s not uncommon to not have enough room for them to come in properly. This causes them to become severely impacted or have the ability to only partially erupt through the gums. Removal of your wisdom teeth can prevent and put a stop to any problems they cause.

Why is treatment of Wisdom Teeth necessary?

If your wisdom teeth are impacted or if you won’t have enough room in the mouth for them to become fully exposed, we’ll recommend having them removed. The sooner that you make the decision to remove your wisdom teeth, the easier the surgery will be and the fewer problems you’ll experience.

Some of the most common signs of needing your wisdom teeth extracted include:

  • Pain and tenderness towards the back of the mouth
  • Gum swelling and infection
  • Shifting or damage of nearby teeth
  • Orthodontic complications when wearing braces
