Why have wisdom teeth removed?
The main reason to have wisdom teeth removed is the lack of room. Most adults have a full dentition that does not leave room for 4 extra teeth to erupt into a healthy position and in alignment with other teeth. When the wisdom teeth are not in a proper position it can cause damage to other healthy structures such as teeth or your jaw. The awkward position results in areas that you cannot reach with a toothbrush or floss. This allows for bacteria to grow and cause infection such as periodontal disease and tooth decay. Having a chronic infection around the wisdom teeth puts you at higher risk for systemic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, inflammatory disease and more. At Oakton Family Dentistry, we have a highly experienced and talented oral surgeon who will evaluate your wisdom teeth and the need to have them removed.
