It is extremely important to Dr. Giuliani and all of our team members hear at Bridge Street Dental Centre in Campbellford, ON that you understand exactly what is involved when it comes to the extraction of you or your child’s wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of the upper and lower normal adult mouth. Unfortunately, most people experience problems from wisdom teeth; in most cases, this is because the teeth erupt too close to existing permanent teeth, causing crowding, improper bites, and other problems.
If wisdom teeth are causing a problem and are not pulled, they can sometimes become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can be extremely painful, as well as harmful to your oral health. Symptoms are easy to spot: pain, inflammation, and some kinds of infections.
Many people need to have their wisdom teeth extracted to avoid future serious problems. In general, the lack of the four wisdom teeth does not hamper one's ability to properly bite down, speak or eat.
There are ways to save your original teeth from extraction and we suggest that you speak with Dr. Giuliani or any of our Campbellford, ON dental team members before you decide which course of action is best for you.
