Wisdom Tooth Extraction London

Wisdom tooth extraction - Forest & Ray - Dentists, Orthodontists, Implant Surgeons


Wisdom teeth are another name for third molars. These are the final molars to form and usually appear in your late adolescence or early twenties. There is frequently insufficient space in the jaw for wisdom teeth to grow normally, which may be misaligned.

Wisdom teeth may sometimes remain beneath the surface, growing at an angle towards the front of your mouth. They may push against the second molar as they grow, potentially causing damage. The pressure can also spread to other teeth, causing them to shift and crowd. Cleaning this area can be difficult when only a portion of a wisdom tooth breaks through the gums.

Wisdom tooth cavities can quickly spread to neighbouring second molars, causing dental problems. There are several indicators that you may have wisdom tooth problems. If you have any of these symptoms, you should discuss them with your dentist at your next appointment.
