Wisdom Teeth Extractions in Hamilton, ON

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Wisdom teeth may need to be extracted for several reasons. Often, they grow in misaligned, either horizontally or angled toward or away from the second molars, leading to crowding and potential damage to adjacent teeth. Impaction is another common issue, where the teeth fail to emerge through the gum line, creating a risk for infection or a cyst that can damage the jawbone and nearby teeth. Removal is preventive, aiming to avoid these complications before they impact your oral health significantly.

Signs You Might Need a Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Several indicators may suggest the need for a wisdom tooth extraction. Persistent pain at the back of the mouth, swelling of the gums near the jawline, difficulty in opening the jaw, and signs of tooth infection are common symptoms. If you experience any of these conditions, it’s crucial to consult with our dental office for a comprehensive evaluation.
