Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of molars to emerge in the mouth. These teeth typically make their appearance during late adolescence or early adulthood. Unfortunately, these latecomers often encounter a common problem — lack of space. This insufficient room for wisdom teeth to grow properly can lead to various dental issues, making their removal necessary to maintaining good oral health and a beautiful smile.

When there is inadequate space for the wisdom teeth, they may become impacted, meaning they cannot fully break through the gum tissues and jawbone. In some cases, they may also come in at an awkward angle. Such problematic eruptions can give rise to several dental complications, such as:

  • Disruption of natural tooth alignment or orthodontic treatment
  • Damage to adjacent teeth
  • Increased susceptibility to tooth decay
  • Gum inflammation and infection in the surrounding tissues
  • Formation of cysts
  • Potential harm to the jawbone

To prevent these problems from occurring and help you maintain a healthy smile, our dentists may recommend wisdom teeth removal. Dr. Candice Arrick will perform a thorough evaluation of your dental structures, including the positioning of your wisdom teeth, to determine if this procedure is necessary. We will also work to ensure that your wisdom teeth removal procedure is as painless and comfortable as possible for you.
