Removal of Wisdom Teeth

By: Redondo Oral Surgery  10/31/2014

Wisdom teeth often erupt as the final teeth in your mouth. If they come in properly and your gums are healthy, you may not need to have them removed. Unfortunately, this generally isn’t the case. Often, the teeth only emerge partially through the gums, or remain trapped beneath the bone. These impacted teeth can then rotate as they attempt to find a way to successfully come in, even possibly growing sideways. Poorly positioned and partially erupted teeth can cause a number of dental problems. Partially erupted teeth can increase the risk of bacteria, and may cause pain and swelling. Partially erupted teeth can also put pressure on the other teeth in your mouth, causing them to shift position and become misaligned. Impacted teeth can develop cysts or tumors which are not only incredibly painful, but can disrupt the surrounding healthy teeth and jaw as well. This is why many dentists recommend the wisdom teeth be removed as a generally preventative measure.
