Wisdom Teeth Surgery
Wisdom teeth removal – we’ll take care of you.
Wisdom teeth normally erupt between the ages of 18 and 24 years of age. For many people the emergence of these molars can cause great pain and discomfort.
You may need to have wisdom teeth removed if your jaw doesn’t have enough space to accomodate their growth.
REASONS WISDOM TEETH NEED TO BE REMOVED
There are many reasons our dentist will recommend your wisdom teeth to be removed.
- Crowding – When wisdom teeth erupt they can push other teeth out of position if there isn’t sufficient space.
- Infection – Sometimes the eruption of wisdom teeth can trigger infection at the top of the tooth. Infection can cause pain and swelling.
- Cysts – Cysts are sacks of fluid and can form around the wisdom tooth and affect nearby teeth and gums.
