When your last set of molars come in, they either come in naturally or cause problems for the rest of your teeth. If your wisdom teeth don’t grow in naturally and protrude your gums, they need to be extracted at your local dentist. At Fresh Meadows Dental, we can tell you if your wisdom teeth need to be removed through routine x-rays.
In most cases, wisdom teeth will grow in on an angle which can cause crowding for your teeth and possible damage to your jawbone or nerves. Wisdom teeth that develop that only partially impact your gums increases the chance for bacteria to build which leads to more cavities and gum disease.
If your wisdom teeth are causing you pain or there appears to be an infection, please give us a call. X-rays will tell us quickly if your wisdom teeth need to be removed before a larger problem occurs. Your oral health is our main concern and making sure your teeth are healthy and aligned properly.
