WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTIONS
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to come in and can become quite painful if not removed.
If you’re experiencing any discomfort or have had a toothache, it could be because your wisdom teeth are coming in. The list of problems that wisdom teeth can cause is lengthy and include the following:
Damage To Our Other Teeth
The extra set of molars can push our other teeth out of place causing tooth crowding which can cause crooked smiles, sensitive teeth and even new cavities.
Damage To Our Jaws
New molars can form cysts that surround them which can lead to extreme pain and nerve damage if left untreated.
Inflammation Of The Gums
When gums become inflamed, they can be painful to brush, chew and sometimes even talk. Bleeding can also occur.
New spaces in our teeth can be new environments for bacteria to grow and this is how infections are caused by the growth of new wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth extractions do not require a hospital stay, but you will need someone to pick you up and take care of your post-operation needs. You’ll get detailed instructions on what to do when following the operation – which might include information about managing discomfort with painkillers lother medications that reduce infection risk during healing periods.
