Wisdom tooth removal is a surgical process for removing 1 or more wisdom teeth. In case a wisdom tooth has no space to grow, it results in infection, pain, and other dental issues. At Advanced Dental Clinic, a trained oral surgeon performs this extraction. For preventing possible future issues, our dentists recommend wisdom tooth removal even if affected teeth are not causing issues presently.
Why Is Wisdom Tooth Removed?
Many people suffer from affected wisdom teeth that don’t get sufficient space for erupting into the mouth or growing normally. Affected wisdom teeth may create the issues mentioned below:
- Complications with orthodontic treatment for straightening other teeth.
- Growth of a cyst around the wisdom tooth
- Damage to surrounding bones or a nearby tooth
- Gum disease or infection
- Trapping food and debris behind this tooth
