Facts About Wisdom Teeth
Whether you need to have your wisdom teeth removed is dependent on individual factors like jaw size and shape, if your teeth are impacted and how their development will affect your bite. Wisdom teeth are commonly extracted because they usually cause the following problems if they are allowed to remain:
The main complaint about wisdom teeth is discomfort. Extracting your wisdom teeth now will put an end to constant pain.
If wisdom teeth are allowed to fully grow in, they can push teeth out of alignment. Your perfectly straight teeth may become crooked!
Oftentimes, wisdom teeth come in sideways, putting pressure on your other teeth. Impacted teeth can lead to complications.
Wisdom teeth are notoriously difficult to keep clean with standard methods, which can trigger an infection, an abscess and disease.
