Wisdom Teeth Removal at Tempe Smiles Family Dental
Why Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Wisdom teeth removal corrects or prevents oral complications from developing. When wisdom teeth uproot through your gums, many issues can occur as some jaws are not large enough to support wisdom teeth. These teeth remain below the gums and are often painful; some wisdom teeth also sprout at an angle, affecting your overall bite.
More serious complications are possible in which an impacted tooth develops infection. An infection can damage other teeth or even lead to a cyst. Wisdom tooth removal helps prevent crowding of your back teeth or teeth from becoming stuck in the jaw. It’s also effective at preventing painful gum flaps from developing over the wisdom tooth.
