Wisdom Tooth Removal in Mississauga, ON
Should you have your teeth removed or not? The answer depends on your oral conditions and circumstances. For some patients, incoming wisdom teeth may not have enough space in the mouth to accommodate them. If that is the case, then the wisdom teeth should be removed before they negatively impact other nearby teeth. Failure to remove wisdom teeth that encroach on other teeth can lead to damage and possible infection.
As well, if wisdom teeth do not properly erupt into the mouth or only erupt into the mouth partially, they should probably be removed to prevent potential infection.
For patients who will be undergoing orthodontic treatment, wisdom teeth removal may also be needed. Once teeth are straightened out and aligned, they may require additional space in the mouth to be adequately aligned. In some cases, other teeth aside from the wisdom teeth may need to be removed instead.
