Mississauga, ON Wisdom Teeth Extractions
What are Wisdom Teeth and Why Do they need to be extracted?
Wisdom teeth are third molars that usually appear in the back of the mouth between the ages of 16 and 25. Wisdom teeth are commonly "impacted", meaning that the tooth never fully emerges and instead remains trapped between the gumline and the jawline. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause many problems, swollen gums, shifting of neighboring teeth causing gaps or crowing, and pain. They can often harbor bacteria in the mouth ultimately causing gum disease or infection due to their hard-to-reach position in the mouth for cleaning.
