| Wisdom Teeth Extraction
What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars. Most people see these teeth erupt in their late teens or early twenties – perhaps just in time to have gained some wisdom.
Why Might They Need to be Removed?
Sometimes wisdom teeth grown in and cause no problems. Often however the development of wisdom teeth can present a series of complications.
When wisdom teeth begin to erupt the flap of gum tissue that grows over the tooth is raised, creating a space for food to become trapped which can cause infection.
Another common complication is misalignment of the wisdom teeth. Misaligned wisdom teeth can be angled towards or away from the second molars. This often causes the tooth to become 'impacted' only erupting partially and not erupt to the surface at all. This improper alignment can cause crowding and potentially damage adjacent teeth, the jawbone or nerves.
