Many patients wonder if extracting wisdom teeth in Sartell, MN is really necessary, and the answer is that in most cases – yes. Here's why:
Wisdom teeth are your third set of molars that arrive at the very back of your mouth behind your second molars. Most people don't have enough space in their mouths to support these extra teeth, which sometimes results in crowding and shifting of neighboring teeth.
Sometimes wisdom teeth remain stuck below the gum line (impacted) and don't come in at all. While this would seem like a good thing, it can result in an infection, so it's still best to have them removed.
Wisdom teeth can be hard to keep clean with brushing and flossing since they are so hard to reach. If you can't remove plaque and bacteria buildup efficiently, it increases your chances of developing problems like tooth decay and gum disease.
