HOW WILL I KNOW IF I need to have my wisdom teeth removed?
Some patients will experience discomfort from pressure, infection, inflammation or irritated and deep periodontal pockets when their wisdom teeth emerge. The only way to know for sure if your wisdom teeth need to be removed is to have a qualified dentist, like Dr. Singh, evaluate them by taking a Panoramic X-ray or 3D CT scan. Despite the considerable concern regarding impacted wisdom teeth, several recent studies found that third molars which have broken through the tissue and erupted into the mouth, in a normal, upright position, may be just as prone to disease as those third molars that remain impacted.
Not all problems related to wisdom teeth are painful or visible. Damage can occur without you being aware of it. No one can predict when wisdom teeth complications will occur, but when they do, wisdom teeth pain can be more severe and difficult to treat, thus complicating teeth surgery. This is why a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Singh who specializes in wisdom teeth extraction, dental removal, and teeth surgery, is essential.
