Wisdom teeth tend to become problematic, cause pain, infection, and other dental obstacles. Your dental care team will proactively monitor their wisdom teeth for young patients, as they are often easier to remove while their teeth and jaw are still growing and developing. In contrast, patients with impacted, unaligned, or stubborn wisdom teeth may experience pain or damage to their jaw, nerves, or other teeth. In addition, impacted wisdom teeth can form cysts in the surrounding gum tissue, potentially creating more complicated matters. Wisdom teeth removal is painless and straightforward. Depending on your specific condition, wisdom teeth can be removed under local anesthetic or anesthesia.
