Sometimes there isn’t sufficient room in the jaw for wisdom teeth to grow. As these are the last teeth to surface, there are times when they are unable to break through the gum tissue or bone. At The Dental Room in Calgary, we offer some of the best wisdom tooth extraction services and are very familiar with the different types of concerns that wisdom teeth can cause. Here is some more information about wisdom teeth and when it becomes necessary to remove them.
More Information About Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth can sometimes fracture while emerging and the gum tissue can begin to grow over them partially. Small food particles can get trapped between the tissue and teeth, and that’s where bacteria can start to buildup and cause discomfort and inflammation.
It is very common for wisdom teeth to emerge at an angle; this too can cause a considerable amount of discomfort, making it difficult to chew food properly. It can also result in crowding, the development of an abscess/cyst, or even damage to the adjacent bone or teeth.
If your wisdom teeth appear to be coming in tipped/sideways or if you notice bleeding or swelling in the gums or jaw, you may need to get your wisdom tooth extracted. For more information, don’t hesitate to contact us at The Dental Room. You can use this form or call us at 403-917-1667.
