Wisdom Teeth Extraction
If wisdom teeth have room to grow in with proper alignment nothing needs to be done however when wisdom teeth are not fully erupted or become impacted you’ll need to have them extracted. When wisdom teeth grow in out of alignment, they can partially erupt through the gums, and the gum will grow up around the tooth. This invited infection into the gum and tooth which can lead to needing more than just your wisdom teeth extracted.
Your dentist here at Star Dental will evaluate the health of your wisdom teeth, and their position and may recommend extraction. This is a fairly common procedure and frequently recommended for young adults.
Does Everyone Need Their Wisdom Teeth Removed?
No, not every patient is a good candidate for wisdom tooth extraction. If the teeth grow in properly or for a number of other reasons, your doctor may recommend not doing anything about your wisdom teeth.
