Your General Dentist in Ottawa can perform wisdom teeth extraction to preserve your smile’s health
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth, the third molars that erupt late and often irregularly, tend to develop several problems (cavities, tumors and cysts, abscesses, etc.) or to harm the neighboring teeth. This is why, after an evaluation of their position and the associated risks, they are sometimes removed. Your dentist at General Dentist Solutions in Ottawa can perform wisdom teeth extraction to preserve the health of your teeth.
Why are they being extracted?
Because of their position in the back of the mouth and their potentially irregular eruption, wisdom teeth carry certain risks. They are removed for two main reasons:
- Controlling a present pathology: Because they are hard to clean and prone to bacterial infiltration, wisdom teeth are vulnerable to oral diseases. These include cavities, abscesses, cysts, and precancerous or cancerous tumors;
- Prevent associated problems: These conditions can easily spread to surrounding teeth and tissues. In addition, misplaced wisdom teeth can affect the roots and stability of adjacent or corresponding teeth.
