“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” – Aristotle
Here’s something you should know about your wisdom teeth.
Nine out of ten people have at least one impacted wisdom tooth. Ouch!
When there isn’t enough room for a tooth to enter the mouth fully, it’s referred to as being “impacted.” If left untreated, it may damage neighbouring teeth, or become infected due to the difficulty in reaching and cleaning that area of the mouth and gums.
Many dental patients, maybe even like you, have had to decide what to do about their wisdom teeth extraction in Airdrie.
To determine what is best for you, however, a visit to your dentist is the smartest solution. Keep in mind, though, that if you have them, you should address this issue sooner rather than later.
Many times, however, wisdom teeth don’t have room to grow properly and can cause problems. Erupting wisdom teeth can grow at various angles in the jaw, sometimes even horizontally. Problems can include wisdom teeth that: Remain completely hidden within the gums.
Some wisdom teeth can cause dental problems including overcrowding, impaction (wisdom tooth pushes into the gum or another tooth) and cause decay and infection, leading to pain, difficulty chewing and bad breath. If wisdom teeth are causing problems have them looked at by your oral health professional.
