When Is Removal Needed?
First and foremost wisdom teeth are removed when they are causing problems, or X-rays show that they will cause problems for you in the future.
Other good reasons to take them out include:
• Damage to other teeth-
That extra set of molars can push your other teeth around, causing mouth pain and bite problems.
• Jaw damage- Wisdom Teeth can hollow out your jaw and damage nerves.
• Sinus Issues- Pain, pressure, and congestion.
• Inflamed Gums
• Cavities- Swollen gums can create pockets between teeth that help bacteria grow and cavities form.
• Alignment- Impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems with crowding
