Why is Wisdom Tooth Removal So Important

The removal of your wisdom teeth can work to relieve pain, suffering, and even tooth decay related to the improper impaction of your third molars. While not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, many people are left with no other option. Instances in which you might wish to remove your wisdom teeth include not having enough room in the mandible to occupy extra teeth, the partial impaction/growth of your wisdom teeth causing extreme pain and discomfort, and gum pain in the area around your wisdom teeth.

Other complications of not removing wisdom teeth include infections caused by food and bacteria accumulated around the wisdom tooth area. Still more unlucky individuals deal with the misalignment of their other teeth, caused by wisdom teeth forcing others to make room for them in the mandible. Because wisdom teeth can also be incredibly difficult to clean, many people find themselves battling tooth decay in and around the gum area occupied by third molars.
