Wisdom Tooth Extraction
A wisdom tooth is also known as your third molar is a tooth at the back corners of your mouth and commonly erupts in the early 20s. They are often impacted under your soft tissues and therefore need a surgical extraction. Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical extraction performed by an experienced oral surgeon to remove one or more of your wisdom teeth.
They can cause a problem in eruption in a few cases, such as;
- Overcrowding in your mouth doesn’t give them enough space to erupt.
- They are impacted under soft tissues or underlying bone.
- They might be damaging the adjacent tooth while erupting in the wrong position.
- When a wisdom tooth is impacted or erupting in the wrong position, it may cause the formation of an abscess or a cyst and can damage your tooth root and underlying bone.
