Do I need to have my wisdom teeth removed?
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of the upper and lower adult mouth. Unfortunately, most people experience problems from wisdom teeth; because they don’t have enough room in their mouth for them.
In some cases, the wisdom teeth erupt to close to existing permanent teeth, causing crowding, improper bites, and other problems.
Sometimes wisdom teeth are called impacted.
This is when the wisdom teeth are growing under the bone but they are sideways or they are being obstructed from growing into the mouth.
These wisdom teeth can be painful and can develop an infection if not removed.
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 impact one’s ability to properly bite down, speak or eat.
Dr. Mary Anne New is certified in the administration of IV sedation and oral sedation for adult patients.
