Chances are you know someone that has had their wisdom teeth removed. While it is possible to experience no issues with these molars, most individuals suffer one or more related complications. Let’s take a look at some of those possible complications that would lead to you needing to get your wisdom teeth removed by a dentist in North Lauderdale.
When wisdom teeth erupt, they enter an already crowded area. Your mouth is already full of teeth so chances are when they come in, they are causing problems to other teeth like moving them aside. Wisdom teeth can undo a straight smile that you might have spent years working on.
Since wisdom teeth can cause a disruption to the teeth that are already in your mouth, gum inflammation can often be caused by them coming in. Recent studies show that once inflammation sets in, it’s very difficult to alleviate it, and it easily spreads to surrounding areas.
Even if you suffer from no pain, inflammation, or overcrowding, wisdom teeth can still affect your oral hygiene. It can be difficult to properly brush and floss around a wisdom tooth. Limited space and their hard-to-reach location make these teeth prime targets for cavities and plaque buildup.
