Wisdom Teeth Extractions
When a tooth doesn’t fully grow in, it’s ‘impacted’. An impacted wisdom tooth can damage its neighboring teeth or can even become infected. It can also invite bacteria that lead to gum diseases. The oral bacteria can travel through bloodstream and may lead to infections and other illnesses.
Patient Safety Guidelines
Wall Family Dental recommends that wisdom teeth should be surgically removed when there are:
- Any infections and/or gum diseases
- Cavities that can’t be restored
- Any Cysts, tumors
- Damaging to neighboring teeth
