Wisdom Teeth Removal in Brunswick

Often viewed as a rite of passage in the late teen years or early adulthood, having your wisdom teeth removed is something nearly everyone goes through in their life. Also referred to as third molars, wisdom teeth often require extraction due to various problems.


These include:

  • Wisdom Tooth Impaction: When wisdom teeth fail to fully break through the gums, they can lead to discomfort, swelling and infections, as well as damage to nearby teeth and bone and the formation of cysts.
  • Misalignment: Limited space in the mouth may cause wisdom teeth to grow at unusual angles, pressuring other teeth. This causes overcrowding, shifting, misalignment and potential bite issues.
  • Decay and Gum Disease: Wisdom teeth are tough to clean due to their location. Therefore, they’re more susceptible to decay and gum disease. Their removal can help avoid worsening oral health conditions.
  • Cysts and Tumors: Impacted wisdom teeth might cause cysts or tumours, damaging adjacent bones, teeth and tissues. Their extraction can prevent cysts and tumour formation and lessen the risk of related problems.
  • Orthodontic Considerations: The presence of wisdom teeth can interrupt orthodontic treatment and tooth alignment. In some cases, extraction may be necessary for a successful bite correction and tooth alignment.

The consequences of these issues often range from pain and discomfort to severe oral health complications.
