Why You Might Need Wisdom Teeth Removal Dental Services
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt, meaning that the chances are high that they may not find enough room to erupt. This explains what you may have heard being referred to as an impacted tooth. What Is an Impacted Tooth? If a wisdom tooth lacks space to erupt, maybe because you have small gums, several things can happen: The wisdom tooth may fail to erupt and grow parallel to your gums The wisdom tooth can grow angled, fail to erupt and start leaning or pushing on the adjacent tooth inside your gum The wisdom tooth can start to erupt angled, where it pushes on the crown of the adjacent tooth (you can see the tooth, but it will be angled) In most of the cases mentioned above (where the tooth is located inside your gum), the wisdom tooth needs to be extracted through surgery.
