Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Your wisdom teeth are the last of your teeth to come in, often in your late teens or early twenties. For most people their mouth is not large enough to accommodate these teeth and they may only partially emerge or not come in at all. Common problems associated with wisdom teeth are overcrowding, infections, and cysts.

common problems

=

Overcrowding

If there’s not enough room for the emerging wisdom teeth, your other teeth can shift and become crowded.
=

Infections

Wisdom teeth often only partially emerge, creating pockets where food can become lodged and create a breeding ground for bacteria. The bacteria will eventually irritate the gums causing swelling and pain, often traveling below the gum line to infect surrounding teeth and the jawbone. If left untreated, these infections can result in receding gum lines, weakened jaw bone, and lost teeth.
=

Cysts

Impacted wisdom teeth may result in cysts inside the bone. If left untreated, the cysts will grow and destroy the surrounding bone.

Wisdom teeth removal is an outpatient procedure

Wisdom teeth removal is an outpatient procedure that generally requires local anesthesia. The procedure is typically pain-free, but you will need someone to drive you home after the procedure.
