Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Most people have wisdom teeth, but can’t keep them clean or don’t have room in their mouths for their wisdom teeth to completely break through their gums. Sometimes, wisdom teeth can partially breakthrough, leaving a small space for decay to set in. Tooth decay can infect the tooth and surrounding areas and may cause substantial pain. If you’re in pain from a decaying wisdom tooth, Emergency Dental Care can treat the infection, and if necessary, extract the tooth.
Each year more than 10,000,000 wisdom teeth are removed. Wisdom teeth are our last four molars in our mouth and tend to erupt during the teenage/young adult age. Unfortunately for many patients, these teeth can be extremely problematic, often becoming impacted. Once they become impacted they can cause issues such as jaw pain and swelling, toothache, bleeding, and tender gums, and teeth crowding. This is why wisdom tooth extractions are performed every day.
