Is it Necessary to Extract Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are renowned for causing problems as they frequently try to erupt into a mouth that is too small or overcrowded to comfortably accommodate them. However, this is not always the case which is why we prefer to take a ‘wait and see’ approach. If your wisdom teeth have not yet erupted, then we will keep a close eye on their development through regular examinations and digital dental x-rays.

Problematic wisdom teeth can push through sideways or will try to erupt underneath adjacent teeth, potentially damaging them and causing pain.  Wisdom teeth that only partially erupt could cause infection and decay. If we can see there is no hope of your wisdom teeth erupting normally, we will suggest you have them removed. We have extensive experience in removing wisdom teeth here at Integrated Dental Care, but if their extraction is particularly complex then we might refer you to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. This will be someone we know and trust to take good care of you.
