EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTION IN LONDON ONTARIO
The third molars at the very back of your mouth, wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come in or, as dentists say, erupt. Most people have 4 of them, 2 in their top row of teeth (left and right) and 2 on the bottom. They usually come in between the time a person is 17 and 25 years old. In some cases, wisdom teeth have plenty of room, erupt normally, and don’t cause any problems.
Why Should Your Wisdom Teeth Be Extracted?
For many people in London, Ontario, wisdom teeth can, unfortunately, cause a lot of pain and suffering. For that reason, many dentists and oral surgeons recommend having them extracted (a.k.a. pulled or removed). The major reasons for having wisdom teeth extracted include:
This is where your wisdom teeth are trapped in either your jaw or gums. Impacted wisdom teeth can be quite painful. They can also create a cyst or cause an infection that damages other teeth, making extraction necessary.
Cavities and/or Gum Disease
The wisdom teeth are far back in the mouth and hard to clean. Oftentimes they can remain partially hidden within your gums. For that reason, they often get cavities or cause gum disease and infections, requiring them to be removed.
Not Enough Room in Your Mouth
Some people in London, Ontario won’t have enough room in their mouth and jaw for an extra set of molars. When their wisdom teeth come in, it causes a lot of pain as they crowd nearby teeth. For this reason, they have them pulled.
