When Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction Really Necessary?
Early humans may have benefited from these extra teeth in order to chew tough, uncooked foods, but in modern times, the wisdom teeth are unnecessary. Indeed, most people don’t even have room in their jaws to accommodate the third molars. As a result, they may become trapped – or impacted – underneath the gum line. Impacted wisdom teeth can be severely painful and can even damage the roots of your other teeth. Even if your wisdom teeth do erupt, they can contribute to decay, crowding, and many other oral health issues. Dr. Jayswal can evaluate whether removing your wisdom teeth would be the healthiest option for you.
