Wisdom teeth are an individual's last teeth to come down and can be found on both the upper and lower sides of the jaws. While they usually surface during teenage years without creating any disturbances, for many adults, wisdom teeth mean complications.
Complications occur in instances where there is insufficient room in the jaw, which then hinders the development of other teeth. This is because the wisdom teeth lack space and have no choice but to grow sideways and become impacted which places undesirable force on other teeth and bone structure.
Wisdom teeth require removal by a dental practitioner when they are impacted or fail to surface completely. If you are experiencing pain or difficulties with your wisdom teeth, schedule a consultation with our friendly staff today. Additionally, your child is welcome to receive a consultation in order to assess their wisdom teeth and any discomfort they may be bringing.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding with a surgical or invasive procedure, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
