Might Be Wiser To Take Them Out?

The bad boys of the dental world, wisdom teeth often need extracting to avoid multiple complications.
With evolution, our jaws are now considerably smaller. This means 90 percent of us don’t have room in our mouth for wisdom teeth. Consequently, this third and final set of molars to develop can wreak oral havoc.
There are two big problems with wisdom teeth. They frequently emerge misaligned, crowding other teeth, or they become impacted – stuck inside the gum or only partially erupting through it.
This is why wisdom teeth removal has become standard practice, typically recommended by our dentists in Gympie to protect long-term oral health by preventing further issues.
What To Expect From
Fully-emerged wisdom teeth can be extracted relatively easily. Impacted or misaligned wisdom teeth are a different matter. One of the most difficult tooth extraction procedures is when a wisdom tooth has to be removed piece by piece.
