Why Your Wisdom Teeth Might Need to Go
Not all teeth come in straight or even upright. Because of their position in the back of your mouth, wisdom teeth can come in horizontally or at awkward angles. Sometimes they don’t even fully emerge from your gums.
All of those situations can cause further oral health issues:
- Crowding or even damaging your other teeth
- Making it difficult to clean your teeth, so you’re more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease
- Making it easier for bacteria to cause a painful infection
Because of this, Dr. Jennifer Perkins, DDS may recommend wisdom tooth removal. Removing your wisdom teeth when advised can help you avoid an even more complicated extraction in the future.
