Why Wisdom Tooth Extractions Are Necessary
The third molars, which are commonly called the wisdom teeth, are typically the last to come in. Because of this, there is often not enough room for them to grow in as they should. When there is not sufficient space, they may become impacted (unable to fully break through the gum tissues and jawbone) or come in at an incorrect angle.
Wisdom teeth that do not erupt as they should can lead to several dental problems, such as:
- Disturbance of the tooth alignment
- Damage to the neighboring teeth
- Tooth decay
- Infection and inflammation in the gums and other tissues
- The formation of cysts
- Damage to the jawbone
Dr. Vacek may suggest wisdom teeth removal to avoid these serious complications. He will carefully evaluate the positioning of the teeth and wisdom teeth at every checkup to determine whether a patient would benefit from this procedure.
