Extraction of Wisdom Teeth

Reasons to consider wisdom teeth extractions:

  • Jaws are too small to accommodate wisdom teeth (teeth impaction)
  • As a result, teeth are not in the right position and can cause problems
  • Malposition difficult to clean/maintain and causing dental disease
  • Malposition causing pain and infection
  • To help with other dental treatment such as orthodontic braces

Keeping impacted wisdom teeth or diseased wisdom teeth may lead to:

  • Cavities
  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Gum disease
  • Damage to nearby teeth and structures
  • Cysts and tumors

Benefits of having your wisdom teeth extracted at a younger age:

  • Reduced risk of surgical complications
  • More predictable recovery
  • Preventing a future problem
