Wisdom Tooth Surgery
The wisdom teeth grow at the back of your gums and are the last teeth to come through. Because of the lack of space, the wisdom teeth can sometimes emerge at an angle or get stuck and only partially emerge. Sometimes, wisdom teeth that have become impacted or haven’t fully broken through the surface of the gum can cause dental problems. Food and bacteria can get trapped around the edge of the wisdom teeth, causing a build-up of plaque, which can lead to tooth decay, gum diseases, and infections (pericoronitis or cellulitis).
Some of these problems can be treated with treatment such as antibiotics and antiseptic mouthwash. However, when these treatment hasn’t work, removing the wisdom teeth is recommended.
