WHAT IS A WISDOM TOOTH EXCTRACTION
Usually wisdom teeth develop in our late teens and early twenties. For most people, these teeth do not have room to grow in properly and can cause a litany of oral health complications including:
- Infection – When there isn’t enough room for wisdom teeth to grow in, the gum tissue becomes irritated and infected, resulting in pain, swelling, and problems chewing and swallowing.
Cyst formation – Cysts are fluid filled sacks that can occur inside the jaw bone. As they expand they cause damage to the jaw bone and occasionally to teeth.
Crowding – Impacted wisdom teeth can cause crowding of your teeth, especially the lower teeth.
Damage to adjacent teeth – If there isn’t enough room to clean around the wisdom tooth, the tooth directly in front of it can be damaged.
