Wisdom teeth are typically the last molars to push through your gums and are generally only an issue if they are causing you pain or discomfort.
A common reason to investigate wisdom tooth removal is when there is not enough space for these molars to fit neatly in your mouth. When wisdom teeth erupt on an angle or crowd other teeth they can impact the roots and bone of neighbouring teeth.
If you suspect that a wisdom tooth may cause issues, please schedule a dental check-up so that we can take a closer look and assess your situation. As a family-focused dentistry we are committed to providing you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your intraoral health.
