Wisdom Teeth

A lot of people do not feel a thing when their wisdom teeth (molars) emerge, while others experience extensive pain. The cause of pain can be overcrowding and impaction. When an erupting molar doesn’t have enough room in the jaw, it pushes the tooth in front of it, or pushes the gum and causes pain.
Common complications from impacted wisdom teeth include:

  • Decay between molars: a wisdom tooth growing sideways makes brushing and flossing difficult, therefore causing decay
  • Gum infection: swelling and bacterial infection, due to difficulty cleaning the area

Infected molars can be treated with antibiotics; however, infection can keep coming back. Moreover, an impacted tooth cannot contribute to chewing, and often causes gum infection. Therefore, it is better to remove the impacted tooth.
