Surgical Dentistry: Wisdom Teeth Removal

What are impacted wisdom teeth?
Impacted wisdom teeth are third molars at the back of the mouth that don’t have enough room to erupt or develop normally.

Who can remove wisdom teeth?
Impacted wisdom teeth can be positioned near integral nerves, which is why we recommend removing them by an oral surgeon. 

What happens if impacted wisdom teeth are not taken out?
If you don’t have your wisdom teeth removed, a partially erupted wisdom tooth can lead to bacterial infection called pericoronitis. Meanwhile, a wisdom tooth that doesn’t erupt can lead to the development of a cyst which can damage bone or gum tissue.
