Wisdom Teeth Removal

Sometimes wisdom teeth can cause problems due. They are place in the very far back of your mouth, which poses unique challenges, especially when it comes to proper cleaning. Even with regular brushing and flossing, reaching every surface of your wisdom teeth can be difficult, making them more susceptible to decay and infection. Because of this, they may require removal in order to protect your remaining teeth.

Wisdom teeth can also cause other problems such as overcrowding, because they push on or against your other teeth. When this happens, it can cause misalignment or damage to your bite, creating additional dental problems that may require more extensive treatment.
