Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last permanent teeth to appear in the mouth. In most cases, wisdom teeth erupt without any issues, just like other molars. However, some people face certain problems like not enough space for the teeth to erupt in the mouth or impacted wisdom teeth may erupt only partially.

If we do determine that the wisdom tooth is causing too much pain or other dental problems, we generally recommend surgery for the impacted wisdom tooth extraction.

Symptoms of Infected Wisdom Teeth:

However, if your wisdom tooth is infected, you will suffer from the following symptoms:


If your wisdom tooth develops in a sac within the jawbone, the sac will fill with fluids and creates a cyst that can cause damage to the jawbone, teeth, and nerves. Eventually, a tumor (mostly noncancerous) develops. If this occurs, you will have to remove not only the tooth but also the tissue and the bone.

If the wisdom tooth grows in an angle that is pushing against the second molar, it may damage the second molar or increase the risks of infecting the entire area.

Due to the difficulty in cleaning the tooth, along with tooth decay, the bacteria collected behind the wisdom tooth increases the risk of developing a gum condition known as pericoronaritis

If a wisdom tooth only grows partially, it faces an increased risk of tooth decay (caries). This is because these teeth are harder to clean
