They are Erupting at Odd Angles
If your wisdom teeth grow up straight and do not interfere with the rest of your smile, then it’s growing in the right direction. But, in case, if the third molars are coming in at an angle pushing through the gums horizontally, then proper attention should be given to avoid any future complications.
They are Partially Erupted
The wisdom teeth are not fully erupted due to some blockages in the eruption area. In these cases, the wisdom teeth should be removed because it may attract bad bacteria and become infected, swollen and painful.
For patients wearing braces, the erupted wisdom teeth will apply pressure to the other teeth toward the front of the mouth, causing crowding or pain. To avoid such painful circumstances, the wisdom teeth should be removed to ensure a successful orthodontic treatment.
It’s recommended for patients with gum disease to extract wisdom teeth because the infection in the gum spreads and infects the impacted wisdom teeth that are struggling to come out of the gum line. This causes extreme pain and discomfort.
If you face any of these problems, then schedule an appointment with your oral surgeon in Sydney to pull out the troubling teeth out of your mouth.
