Why Wisdom Teeth Often Need to Be Removed

Wisdom teeth are usually the last molars to erupt as you get older. Healthy wisdom teeth can be good for your mouth, but they often create problems that cause them to need to be removed. Watch this video to learn more about wisdom teeth.

As wisdom teeth develop and begin to emerge, there are a variety of issues that can arise. Some wisdom teeth do not fully erupt, causing a pocket to form under the gum line. Bacteria can accumulate here, leading to decay in the wisdom teeth or the neighboring teeth. Wisdom teeth that come in sideways may get trapped, causing pain and infection. Your dentist may recommend that you have your wisdom teeth removed to avoid these problems.

At Oak Creek Dental Care, our friendly and compassionate dentists can evaluate you to see if you need to have your wisdom teeth removed. Call our Columbus office at (614) 882-5525 to schedule a consultation. You can also visit us online for a look at all of our dentistry services.
