WISDOM TEETH

 

wisdom_teeth.jpgWhy Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom Teeth are the last teeth to come out in the mouth and quiet often there is not enought space so wisdom teeth come out at all different angles

 

 

 

 

What are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom Teeth are the last teeth to erupt into the mouth and are the 3rd molar teeth. Because of this they quite often have no room and are squeezed out due to lack of space. This results in them coming in at all funny angles (ie they are impacted). The impaction makes them hard to remove as getting access to them is difficult as you are only able to open your jaw a limited amount.

The end result of not removing wisdom teeth is

1. Development of infections
2. The other teeth moving out of alignment
3. Possible cyst formation
4. Destruction of the good teeth due to inability to clean.
