About Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth usually begin developing in the teenage years and may continue into a person’s late 20s. This third set of molars may never cause any problems, or could require extraction due to complications.
To know whether your wisdom teeth will have to be extracted, it’s necessary to have a consultation with our team. We’ll perform a thorough examination with diagnostics such as X-rays to look at the position of your wisdom teeth. From the examination, we will determine if your wisdom teeth are healthy and properly positioned. Not everyone will need to have their wisdom teeth removed, some people are better off removing Wisdom teeth due to the following reasons
- Pain or discomfort
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- The presence of cysts or tumours
- Crowding caused by pressure from your wisdom teeth
- Damage to adjacent teeth
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay that is not restorable
