Your wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are usually the last teeth to come in. There is almost never enough space in the mouth for these teeth to erupt properly, which can result in a number of complications. The most common problem is impaction. An impacted tooth occurs when the tooth is unable to fully break through the gum tissues and jawbones. Other problems associated with wisdom teeth include:
- Wisdom teeth erupting at an incorrect angle
- Disturbances to the alignment of your other teeth
- Damage to neighboring teeth
- Tooth decay, infection, and inflammation
- Damage to the jawbone
Our dentists will carefully examine your mouth and evaluate your wisdom teeth to determine if you would benefit from wisdom teeth removal. When we perform this procedure, we will provide you with anesthesia and sedation dentistry, and will use the latest treatment techniques to ensure that your procedure is as comfortable and effective as possible.
