One of the most common oral health procedures clients are experiencing are wisdom teeth extractions. Not every wisdom teeth will need to be removed, but a good number of clients simply do not have adequate space for their teeth to comfortably fit into the oral cavity or clients have a difficult time keeping wisdom teeth hygienic and bacteria free as these molars are too far to the back in the mouth.
Wisdom teeth that have become impacted may produce quite a few problems including root resorption, bone loss on the posterior surface of the tooth straight in front of them, swollen, inflamed or irritated periodontal tissues surrounding a partially erupted wisdom tooth, or pain that seems to emerge and disappears at the wisdom tooth site. Some have suggested that impacted wisdom teeth may also lead to crowding of the teeth. Occasionally, unerupted wisdom teeth might cultivate cysts, which in fewer instances, these kinds of cysts can become cancerous!
