Wisdom Teeth Removal
Unfortunately, wisdom teeth do not provide wisdom. Instead, they often cause problems in adolescents and adults. Most people simply don’t have enough room to accommodate third molars. As a result, wisdom teeth often become encased in gum or bone tissue, which causes pain and pressure. Infection may also occur, which can damage the jawbone and adjacent teeth. In rare circumstances, wisdom teeth develop into cysts or tumors that create a larger problem and require more extensive oral surgery. If wisdom teeth do erupt, they typically crowd existing teeth. Crowding makes for an unappealing smile and increases the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
