Wisdom teeth often come in as misaligned or impacted. When impacted, they are still enclosed within the soft tissue, or only partially breaking through the gum line. Since it is only partially exposed, bacteria can easily enter the surroundings of the tooth, and cause infection. It can also cause pain, and facial and gum line swelling. Tooth decay and gum disease are also more prevalent in a partially erupted tooth as it is more difficult to brush and floss.
Removing wisdom teeth is a rather common surgery. A local anesthetic along with sedation is commonly used. Therefore, considering the sedation, someone will need to drive you to and from the appointment in our Perth Amboy dental practice.
