What problems can arise with impacted wisdom teeth?

When you have an impacted wisdom tooth, there are several problems that can arise including the following:

  • Infection may develop in the gum flap overlaying the tooth, or decay may develop in the tooth
  • Impacted teeth may damage the teeth beside them
  • Wisdom teeth can be difficult to clean, making them prone to decay and infection
  • Should the tooth fail to erupt, a cyst may form and, by gradual enlargement, endanger the health of the nearby bone and teeth
  • These problems can be prevented by the timely surgical removal of the teeth, which we are able to ensure is completed as stress-free as possible with our various sedation options.
