DO I NEED MY WISDOM TEETH REMOVED?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth. Dentists recommend patients have their wisdom teeth removed when they begin to compromise your oral health. Wisdom teeth may partially emerge, grow at various angles and even be completely hidden beneath the gum and bone. Poorly positioned or impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain and discomfort, teeth crowding, damage the jaw bone, and make you vulnerable to gum disease-causing bacteria. In most cases, wisdom teeth extraction solves these issues. Your dentist may  recommend early removal to avoid such problems.
