Wisdom Teeth Extractions in Surf City, NC
Wisdom teeth are the last molars that develop on each side of the jaw. Most people will notice their wisdom teeth starting to come in between the ages of 16 and 20. Some will experience pain or discomfort in the back of their mouth where the wisdom teeth are emerging.
Though some mouths may be able to accommodate these “third molars,” many cannot. When wisdom teeth are threatening oral health and comfort, your dentist will advise you to have a procedure to remove them.
Wisdom Teeth Removal in Surf City, North Carolina
When allowed to grow in and function properly, wisdom teeth can be a valuable asset to the mouth. However, many conditions prevent these teeth from growing in normally and can lead to oral health complications.
If the jaw isn’t large enough to host wisdom teeth, the teeth can become impacted (unable to come in), grow in sideways, or only partially emerge from the gum. In these cases, removal would be the best option for comfort and health of the patient.
