Your wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come through the gums, and they’re among the largest in the mouth, too. Unfortunately, many people don’t have room for the them in their jaws, so they become impacted, presenting a variety of concerns. We specializes in removing these pesky teeth, ideally before they cause problems.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Prevents Problems
Once upon a time, the these teeth served a purpose. They helped our ancestors chew whatever edible items they happened upon in their travels. However, we’re no longer foraging for our food, and these teeth are largely useless in modern life. Most people opt to have their wisdom teeth extracted during early adulthood. When left in place, they can cause pain and become infected.
They may develop potentially dangerous cysts and tumors or damage other nearby teeth. If you already have a straight, beautiful smile, wisdom teeth removal can help it stay that way. When the teeth try to erupt into a jaw that has no room for them, they’ll cause crowding in the other teeth. If that happens, any effort you invested in orthodontic treatment will be for naught.
