Many times, our doctors find that patients are reluctant to have wisdom teeth removal, as surgery of any kind can be daunting to even think about. However, there are future dental complications that could occur if you choose to ignore your aching wisdom teeth. To better understand, keep reading.

What Types of Dental Complications Can Wisdom Teeth Removal Prevent?

Wisdom teeth are the last molars in the mouth to erupt and usually start causing trouble for Virginia Beach residents in their late teens and early 20s. Because wisdom teeth are no longer needed for oral function, most people choose to have them removed as soon as possible. However, as we mentioned, some people choose to avoid the procedure altogether. But the longer they stay in the mouth, the more likely they are to cause complications.

  • Wisdom Teeth Removal Can Prevent Cavities

Virginia Beach patients who choose to have wisdom teeth removal protect their back molars from cavities. This is because wisdom teeth don’t typically have enough room to erupt in the back of the mouth, so when they do, they push against the back molars causing crowding and little room for patients to effectively perform proper oral care. Without proper oral care, tartar can build up and cause cavities.

  • Wisdom Teeth Removal Can Prevent Oral Discomfort

Our doctors can help Virginia Beach men and women avoid oral discomfort by performing wisdom teeth removal. We all know that when wisdom teeth are ready to push through the gum line, they’ll keep pushing – no matter what. Wisdom teeth that don’t have the room to properly erupt are often impacted, which can lead to pain in the jaw, neck, and head. When you have wisdom teeth removal, you can get back to your life – pain-free!

  • Wisdom Teeth Removal Can Prevent Oral Infections

When you choose to have wisdom teeth removal with one of our doctors, you can effectively prevent oral infections from occurring. When wisdom teeth become impacted, meaning that they are unable to properly erupt through the gum line, they cause tiny cuts along the gum line. These tiny cuts can collect food and bacteria, which, when left for an extended period of time, can lead to oral infection.
