Wisdom teeth are located at the very back of your mouth and often erupt during your late teens to early twenties. A wisdom tooth can become ‘impacted’ if there isn’t enough room for it to properly grow, which can cause pain and discomfort for your mouth. This is a common problem since most people’s mouths don’t have enough space to accommodate them. As a result, a wisdom tooth may need to be extracted. Signs requiring an extraction include:
A wisdom tooth that is only partially erupted due to insufficient space
An impacted or erupted wisdom tooth that is putting pressure on or is damaging neighboring teeth
Cysts that develop which can damage nearby areas
If you have any of these symptoms, contact our office right away. We’ll thoroughly examine your teeth and gums to determine if an extraction is required. We use the latest technology including digital X-rays and intraoral cameras to get an in-depth look at your mouth.
