What is it?
Some people are lucky enough to be born without wisdom teeth, others have no issues with them but for most of us, there is not enough space in our mouths to accommodate the wisdom teeth. This can lead to problems such as:
• Facial swelling
• Damage to adjacent teeth
What causes it?
When a wisdom tooth is impacted, it causes discomfort in the form of swelling in the gums, and can significantly affect your daily habits. However, leaving this condition untreated can cause food to be trapped in the gaps formed by the emerging tooth, and this can lead to further complications through gum disease and tooth decay.
Wisdom teeth can cause problems at any stage of our teenage or adult life.
At Liberty Dental Centre we are experts in dealing with wisdom tooth problems. We begin solving the problem by taking x-rays to assess the position of your wisdom teeth. If they are well-positioned, we will keep an eye on them until they come through fully and help you deal with any transient pain along the way.
If they are not in a good position we will discuss with you the best options for removing them.
