Wisdom Teeth Removal in Burlington
Why Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
There are a lot of reasons that having your wisdom teeth removed may be recommended by your dentist. Most commonly, the wisdom teeth are not aligning correctly and will erupt in a manner that will crowd and damage the surrounding teeth or their alignment. Wisdom teeth can grow in sideways, only partially erupt, or they can remain stuck under the gumline. Each of these scenarios requires removal to avoid other complications.
• If your wisdom teeth are coming in crooked, they will impact your other teeth causing damage and misalignment.
• If your wisdom teeth only partially erupt, they can leave an opening or flap of gum tissue that will trap food particles and lead to the growth of bacteria. This can lead to infection, inflammation and discomfort.
• In rare cases, improperly erupted wisdom teeth can cause cysts to form around the teeth which will harm surrounding teeth and your jaw bone.
Luckily, modern wisdom teeth removal can take care of all these issues without too much fuss.
