Are experiencing pain or discomfort on your wisdom teeth?
Regardless, it is generally recommended to screen for potential problems early.
Wisdom tooth removal is most suitable when:
- impaction is present, or
- infection or re-infection are likely, or
- there is the chance of damage to adjacent teeth (which would be irreversible), or
- to avoid a more complicated surgery later.
- have cavities and won’t help you chew the food either.
If all is good (the position and alignment of these teeth) removal is not recommended.
Although even in these cases we will monitor closely for the presence of cavities or gum disease.
