Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Extracted?
There are several reasons why wisdom teeth may need to be extracted.
- First, the mouth may not have enough room for the teeth to emerge properly. This can cause the teeth to become impacted or trapped beneath the gums, leading to pain, infection, and even damage to the surrounding teeth and bone.
- Second, wisdom teeth may emerge at an angle or root in the wrong direction, which can also cause pain and damage to the surrounding teeth and bone.
- Finally, wisdom teeth are often harder to clean and more prone to cavities and gum disease. Removing them can help prevent future oral health problems.
