Wayward Wisdom Teeth
The last teeth to the party are typically the four molars called “wisdom teeth.” Because they come in later on, there may not be room for them in your mouth. Instead of letting them push your other teeth around, our doctors at South Louisville Oral Surgery are here to help.
In addition to not fitting in the average adult’s mouth, wisdom teeth can cause additional problems. As they knock other teeth out of alignment, they may cause discomfort or affect a your bite. On the other hand, if they don’t fully come through your gums, it can leave you vulnerable to infection. In extreme cases, tumors or cysts can grow out of partially impacted teeth.
The experts at South Louisville Oral Surgery can determine if a wisdom tooth removal is right for you. If you are experiencing discomfort, or want to avoid it, contact our office in Louisville today to schedule a consultation for wisdom teeth removal.
