Common Problems Caused by Wisdom Tooth
If your jaw is not large enough, it will not allow room for your wisdom tooth to grow. When this happens, the wisdom tooth might become impacted in your jaw. The teeth might be trapped at an angle, while other times they might be trapped horizontally or vertically beneath the gum tissue.
In other cases, your tooth might only grow part way and then a flap of gum tissue might grow over it. This could lead to bacterial infection if food particles become stuck between the excess gum tissue and teeth.
Wisdom tooth crowding could also cause your teeth to grow in a way that they cut into your cheeks. The chance of this happening increases if your teeth and jaw bones are not properly aligned.
Why have Wisdom Tooth Removed?
They are not essential for daily functioning. They can become more problematic and cause inflammation and pain when chewing, talking, laughing or smiling. You will want to remove them if you want to live more comfortably. You can also have your wisdom tooth removed so you don’t have to worry about bleeding that occurs when accidentally biting your cheeks.
During the Extraction Procedure
We provide anaesthesia to remove pain or discomfort during the tooth extraction process. The process is very fast and takes less than an hour as long as no major complications occur.
After Your Wisdom Tooth Is Extracted
We will tell you to avoid chewing hard foods for at least 24 hours – or at the very least not to chew on areas that still needs healing. You are also advised not to drink alcohol or smoke for at least for a day or two because it can irritate the space where the tooth was pulled.
