The third molars, commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, typically emerge as the final set of teeth. Due to their late arrival, these teeth often encounter a lack of adequate space for proper growth. Consequently, wisdom teeth may either remain impacted, unable to fully emerge through the gum and jawbone, or they may grow in an improper orientation. Such circumstances can give rise to various dental complications, including disturbances in natural tooth alignment or ongoing orthodontic treatments, potential harm to adjacent teeth, susceptibility to tooth decay, inflammation and infection in the gum tissues and surrounding structures, cyst formation and even harm to the jawbone.
In light of these potential issues, our dentists may recommend the removal of wisdom teeth to circumvent these consequential complications and uphold your oral well-being. A thorough assessment of your dental configuration, encompassing the positioning of your existing teeth and wisdom teeth, will guide our determination of the necessity for wisdom teeth removal.
Depending on the position of your wisdom teeth, including how far they have erupted and the complexity of your case, our dentists may need to refer you to a specialist for treatment. We are dedicated to ensuring that the process of wisdom teeth removal is comfortable and effective, and will always make the recommendation that we believe will provide you with the highest quality of care.
