The third-last permanent molars, wisdom teeth are typically found in pairs in the upper and lower jaw. Typically erupting between the ages of 17 and 25, impact occurs when the tooth is prevented from fully erupting by another tooth, bone or gums.
Impacted wisdom teeth contribute to the development of bacteria, decay and gum infection. More serious issues can also occur, including the formation of a tumour or cyst around the impacted tooth.
As these issues can progress rapidly and often without noticeable symptoms, it is important to visit your dentist regularly. During the initial consultation for wisdom teeth, x-rays will be taken to determine if removal is necessary.
Dr Nav Khaira will assess, and if required, performs this minor surgery under local or general anaesthetic and with as little discomfort as possible. To learn more about the surgical process and aftercare or schedule a consultation, please contact us today.
