Wisdom Tooth Extractions
The Importance of Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Emerging between ages 17 to 25, wisdom teeth commonly necessitate removal due to limited space and improper growth angles. Impacted wisdom teeth, hidden below the gums, can lead to detrimental effects like neighboring molar pain, jaw structural damage, and cyst or infection formation.
A partial eruption can create pockets for debris, fostering gum infections and periodontal problems. Often symptomless, the damage becomes apparent through pain or swelling after years of silent progression.
