Wisdom Tooth Removal:
Wisdom teeth appear in the mouth usually between 16 to 25 years of age. They are the third and final molars in the back of the mouth. Many times, wisdom teeth grow sideway or remain trapped between the gums. In situations like this, inflammation, pain and even infection can be caused. These teeth are commonly removed to prevent more serious problems later on. In more serious cases, they may cause cysts, tumours or even destroy the jawbone and other healthy teeth around them. If you are experiencing pain, discomfort or inflammation due to your wisdom teeth, come in for a consultation and we can advise you of the correct course of treatment.
