Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom teeth are your third molar teeth located at the back of your mouth. They generally start coming into your mouth in your late teens or early twenties. In some people, where there is not enough room for these teeth to come through or erupt, these teeth fail to come though properly, either remaining completely under the gums or partially in the mouth. Why are these teeth such a problem? Often these teeth are very hard to keep clean and will decay easily. With partially erupted wisdom teeth, food can become trapped under the gums causing painful and inflamed gum condition called pericoronitis, pain and facial swelling. They may damage the second molar through crowding or by causing an entrapment area where bacteria and food builds up, causing decay in the second molar.
