Wisdom Tooth Removal at our Toronto (Yorkville) and Scarborough Dental Clinics
Not all wisdom teeth need to be removed, but it’s important for young people, in their teens, to routinely have their wisdom teeth inspected, to determine whether extraction can prevent discomfort and other related issues.
What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come in and the ones least needed for good oral health. The third molars, or wisdom teeth, are called such because they develop when most individuals become young adults.
When is wisdom tooth extraction needed?
Wisdom tooth removal at our Yorkville and Scarborough dental offices is generally required when it starts to cause a problem within the mouth. The most common issues that occur when a wisdom tooth grows in are that it begins to crowd your mouth or creates an opening in your gums – where bacteria can cause infections.
There are several adverse effects that can be caused because of wisdom teeth growing, which is why it’s essential to ensure you get regular dental checkups and dental x-ray services.
Potential complications from wisdom teeth include:
- Pain & discomfort
- Nerve problems
When any of the above symptoms become severe, wisdom teeth removal may be recommended.
