Emerging wisdom teeth can cause a number of dental problems. If there is not enough room in the jaw, or if they erupt at an angle, they will push against the other existing teeth, which can cause quite severe pain.
Also, if they do not erupt completely from the gums, a flap of gum is sometimes left covering part of the tooth. This forms a pocket which collects food, plaque and bacteria and can be prone to tooth decay and gum infection.
If your wisdom teeth are causing you any discomfort, it may be easier to have them removed completely.
Removing a Wisdom Tooth at The Neem Tree
If your wisdom teeth are causing you pain, your Neem Tree dentist may decide that the best solution is to remove one or all of them. Wisdom teeth are not necessary for chewing food, and removal of them is one of the most frequently carried out oral surgical procedures.
We use anaesthetic and as few appointments as possible to ensure your wisdom teeth are removed as painlessly and comfortably as possible.
