many people have problems with wisdom teeth. Very frequently,
there is not enough room for them to erupt into the arch
normally, or they attempt to come in sideways or have
other similar difficulties. They then become impacted,
that is, impeded from normal eruption.
If this is the case, our advice is to have them removed
at your earliest convenience. Experience has shown that
complications from wisdom tooth surgery greatly increase
with advancing age. If, however, they can be removed in
the late teens or early twenties, complications are much
milder and less likely to occur. If they are left alone,
as you get older, wisdom teeth can be a source of serious,
even life-threatening infections that can swell to close
off your breathing or can spread to your brain. Why take
those chances when wisdom tooth removal at a young age
is such a routine procedure?
