Reasons for Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars developed in late teenage years or early adulthood and can be a threat to the health of the rest of your mouth. Through evolution, our mouths have grown narrower to adapt to the processed foods we eat. As a result of this, as our wisdom teeth grow, they often become misaligned or come in at an angle. This can allow bacteria to enter the sides of the gums.
If the misaligned wisdom tooth is kept, damage to your jawbone may eventuate. With minimal room for wisdom teeth to correctly erupt, failure to remove it can cause a lot of pain, amongst other potential issues, including:
- Gum disease and tooth decay
- Damage to surrounding teeth
- Dental infection caused by food getting stuck under the gums
- Overcrowding and misaligned teeth
- Teeth becoming impacted, causing inflammation and infection
