Why Do I Need my Wisdom Teeth Removed?

wisdom teeth pelham alYour wisdom teeth, or “third molars,” are the teeth at the very back of your mouth on both the top and bottom. These teeth typically start emerging through the gums during early adulthood.

If you have enough room in your mouth to accommodate the eruption of your wisdom teeth, you may not need them removed; however, most people do not have enough space in their mouths and will need oral surgery to remove their wisdom teeth in order to avoid potential health problems.

In many cases, wisdom teeth only have enough room to erupt partially through the gums. This can cause oral health problems because the broken part of the gum tissue is left vulnerable to bacteria and infection.

The third molars may even remain impacted below the gums. They can grow in such a way that they could damage nearby teeth, or cause nerve damage in the jaw. If we believe that your wisdom teeth are going to cause you future oral health problems, we may recommend that they are removed.

If you’re concerned about your wisdom teeth, or if you’ve experienced pain at the back of your mouth, schedule a visit to our Pelham dental office for a consultation.
