Consequences of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

There are a number of problems associated with impacted wisdom teeth, but the most common problems are periodontal; the impacted wisdom teeth can adversely affect the relationship between gums and nearby teeth, increase the risk of gum disease, and even cause tooth loss. If the tooth partially erupts, it can be nearly impossible to clean, and this can lead to problems like decay and abscess.

It is important to know that impacted wisdom teeth may show no symptoms. Regular checkups during the developing teenage years will allow us to keep an eye on wisdom tooth development and determine if removal is needed. These third molars generally come in between the ages of 17-25.

The caring team at our office can provide you with an environment of optimal safety, local anesthesia, and modern monitoring equipment to help you be relaxed and prepared for your procedure. It is better to have your wisdom teeth removed sooner rather than later in order to minimize the surgical risk involved with the treatment and avoid future problems.
