SInce there is no space or a path for eruption, wisdom teeth may become impacted, causing chronic pain and crowing issues.
The simplest way to solve the problem is to have them removed and the sooner it happens, the smoother the procedure.
Tooth extractions are most common for wisdom tooth removal, since the growth of wisdom teeth may cause overcrowding and tooth misalignment.
Wisdom teeth may also become impacted, or stuck inside your gums without erupting or growing into your mouth. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, infections, and cysts that damage other teeth.
For this reason, it may be advisable to extract wisdom teeth before they negatively affect your dental health.
If you have been experiencing sensitivity or discomfort around the impacted teeth, now may be a good time to schedule an appointment.
Additionally, if there is infection around the gums, damage to the adjacent teeth, and cysts around the jawbone it is important to address the matter as quickly as possible.
At Elite Dental Group, we use panoramic x-rays as well as CT scans to see how close the tooth is to the nerve and whether it is fully impacted, partially erupted or fully erupted we are able to take care of the case.
