The wisdom teeth can cause tooth decay, gum disease, and damage to your teeth unless you visit Dr. Christopher McGonigle to have them extracted. You can benefit from quality care at Advanced Dental Care as we perform this procedure with skill and comfort. Contact our dentist if you need a wisdom teeth extraction in Burlington, Massachusetts.
The third molars, which are commonly called the wisdom teeth, are typically the last teeth to come in. Because they are the last to erupt, there is often not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in as they should. When there is not sufficient space for the wisdom teeth, they may become impacted (unable to fully break through the gum tissues and jawbone), or they may grow in at an incorrect angle. Wisdom teeth that do not erupt as they should can lead to several dental problems, such as:
Disturbing the natural tooth alignment or orthodontic treatment
Damage to the neighboring teeth
Infection and inflammation in the gums and other tissues
The formation of cysts
Damage to the jawbone
