The eruption of wisdom teeth can sometimes be complicated due to the lack of space in the jaw or the alignment of the wisdom tooth itself, as it sits underneath the gums. In these cases, we may recommend that the wisdom teeth be removed. This is to prevent future problems from arising in either the jaw, the surrounding teeth and gums or all of the above.
If this procedure is expected to be straight forward, we are able to remove the tooth/teeth In our offices under local anesthetic. If this procedure is expected to be difficult, we will suggest a referral to an oral surgeon who is better equipped to manage the removal of difficult wisdom teeth.
