Why Are Wisdom Teeth Extracted?

Wisdom teeth commonly face surgical extraction because they become impacted and do not completely erupt into the mouth due to lack of space. Impacted wisdom teeth are harder to clean due to their irregular surfaces, leading to trapped food particles and bacteria.

This goes on to cause infection, severe toothaches or other dental problems for many patients. In such cases, it’s better to remove your wisdom tooth sooner than later. If left unaddressed, an impacted wisdom tooth could even damage surrounding molars and jawbone through cavities or cyst formation.
