Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Extracted?
Many dentists recommend wisdom tooth removal when the tooth itself does not fully erupt, or if it grows near the lower jaw nerve. These specialists believe that it is better to go through the wisdom teeth removal procedure when the patient is younger and before the roots are formed completely so that they’re able to recover faster from surgery. For this reason, many young adults have their wisdom teeth removed before the area can cause complications. Teeth removal may be essential if you start to experience alarming changes, such as:
- Damage to nearby teeth
- Extensive tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Recurrent soft tissue infections
