WE REMOVE WISDOM TEETH AS A PART OF OUR SERVICES AT MY IMPLANT DENTIST
A common problem is that some wisdom teeth grow through the gum, breaking the surface but not fully erupting.
The third molar teeth commonly known as wisdom teeth are the teeth at the back of your mouth. Some wisdom teeth do not come through fully and get stuck against nearby teeth or bone. This often leaves a flap of gum over your tooth. In some cases they grow too long (over erupt). Wisdom teeth tend to erupt in the late teens or twenties.
WHEN DO WISDOM TEETH NEED REMOVAL?
While you usually have about 32 teeth in your mouth, sometimes your jaw can be too small to accommodate them all. If there’s not enough space for a wisdom tooth to come through properly, it may erupt at an angle.
Before long, it can start pushing against an adjacent tooth, causing pain and irritating the cheek and gums.
