Wisdom Tooth Extractions
While the average mouth can only accommodate 28 teeth, most people will develop an additional 4 teeth by the age of 18. These additional teeth are your third molars, also know as wisdom teeth, and by the time they come in, there is no room for them.
When space is limited, wisdom teeth often grow sideways, either partially surfacing or burying themselves beneath your gums and bone. In such situations, these impacted wisdom teeth may lead to a wide array of dental complications:
– Damage of nearby teeth resulting from the impacted molars
– Gum disease or irritation
– Pain in your gums or jaw
– Soft tissue infections behind your last molars
– Tooth decay surrounding the impacted teeth
If you have experienced any negative symptoms resulting from impacted wisdom teeth, call Southtowns Dental Services immediately for a consultation.
