Known to come in when an individual reaches their late teens or early twenties, wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars on the sides of the upper and lower jaw. If wisdom teeth come in properly like a regular tooth, and the surrounding gum tissue is healthy, they can be treated like your other teeth and do not need to be extracted.
Unfortunately, not all wisdom teeth come in properly. If they come in sideway or tiled, or there is not enough room between existing teeth, they may become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth pose a serious threat to your dental health as they can lead to not only the crowding of teeth and infections, but also cause a large amount of pain in the meantime.
Because of the high risk for dental concerns, wisdom teeth removal may be your only choice to avoid them. An early removal of badly positioned wisdom teeth can prevent future dental issues and increase your chance for the best healing afterwards.
Wisdom teeth removal is a common, routine procedure that can be performed in one office visit, with sedation being available.
