Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom Teeth Removal at Naenae
Many of us don’t have enough jaw room to fit all of our teeth, resulting in overcrowding. As a result, your wisdom teeth become impacted and protrude behind your molars through the gums. Your wisdom tooth may have acquired infection as a result of the presence of germs, leading to tooth decay. This might lead to the formation of cysts and tumours if left untreated. Other teeth’s positions are thrown off as a result of the problem, making the interior of your mouth seem unattractive.
Common Wisdom Teeth Issues
Wisdom teeth commonly cause issues for many people. It is not uncommon for these teeth to be misaligned or become impacted, in other words blocked. An impacted tooth is one which has not grown through the gum into the mouth or has grown only part way through and is in an abnormal position. Wisdom teeth that only partially emerge or come in crooked can lead to problems such as abscesses, gum disease, tooth decay, cysts or infection. Also, adolescents wearing dental braces or other orthodontic appliances, often have their wisdom teeth removed at the end of their treatment. This is because emerging wisdom teeth can alter tooth alignment after they have been straightened.
Tooth Extraction Process
If a dental extraction is required and your wisdom teeth are visible in the mouth, a simple extraction under local anaesthetic can be performed by our experienced dental surgeons here at Naenae Dental Clinic. We also work with local maxillofacial surgeons for major oral surgery that is beyond the scope of a general dental practice.
If your wisdom teeth give you pain or discomfort, see your dentist. Early treatment greatly reduces your risk of bigger problems later on in life.
