Wisdom teeth, also called third molars, Wisdom teeth usually erupt during your late teens or early twenties and due to their late eruption, they can fail to erupt completely, be partially emerged or remain under the gum (impacted wisdom tooth). This will irritate the gum which will cause it to swell and be painful after a period of time. If you need all four wisdom teeth removed, they are usually taken out at the same time.
Your wisdom tooth/teeth may need to be removed for the following reasons:
Wisdom teeth can often be very difficult to clean, they are susceptible to tooth decay, gum disease and recurring infections.
They can cause disruption to other teeth and even decay to adjacent teeth if they come in crooked.
Cysts and tumours can develop in tissues around the impacted wisdom teeth.
Straightforward and complex removal of wisdom teeth can be done in our surgery.
