Wisdom teeth often cause uncomfortable days. This is related to the fact that the molar teeth far back have no room in the jaw bone to grow. This very often leads to improper growing directions. As a result teeth may not or only partially erupt and find their way out of the gum. Proper cleaning of such teeth is not possible without compromises. We could end up with impacted and infected wisdom teeth that cause serious pain and inconvenient dental issues.
An impacted wisdom tooth may generate additional problems, too. By pushing neighbouring teeth to the front, these teeth can easily make an otherwise nicely set of teeth jammed. Such phenomenon can only be treated by orthodontic methods.
Wisdom teeth may get trapped by another tooth half-way through. Then bacteria can get access to the gum thus causing infection that may result in heavy pain, swelling and lockjaw.
This condition might seriously threaten the surrounding teeth as well. This area is hard to reach while cleaning therefore caries can easily develop on the neighbouring teeth, too.
In the attempt to prevent further troubles it is worth having these wisdom teeth extracted sooner rather than later. This helps you avoid infectious problems with your wisdom teeth and also helps to keep the healthy teeth away from bacteria.
