Impacted wisdom teeth can be a source of discomfort in the head, face, and mouth.
The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. Poorly positioned or impacted wisdom teeth can cause many problems, including changing the natural alignment of your other teeth, infection, or the formation of tumors or cysts around the impacted wisdom teeth, resulting in the destruction of the jawbone and healthy teeth.
When wisdom teeth are extracted before the age of 25, these problems can be avoided, with patients recovering faster and experiencing far fewer complications. Here’s a video that describes the procedures used to extract impacted wisdom teeth.
