Since they are the last teeth to come in, your third molars, or wisdom teeth, usually do not have enough space to properly grow in your mouth. They can come in at the wrong angle, or they can even become impacted, which means that they are unable to completely penetrate the jawbone or gum tissues. Wisdom teeth that have not erupted correctly can cause the following dental issues:

  • Disruption of your teeth’s natural alignment or your orthodontic treatment
  • Damage to your surrounding teeth
  • Cavities
  • Gum infection or inflammation
  • Cysts
  • Damage to your jawbone

Our dentist and team can examine your mouth and the positions of your teeth to evaluate whether a wisdom teeth extraction would be beneficial to you. If you require an extraction, rest assured that our excellent team will keep you comfortable and make the procedure as painless as possible. If you have any questions about our wisdom teeth extractions, or if you would like to schedule an appointment with us, contact us today.
