Bellingham Wisdom Teeth & Other Tooth Extractions
Are you experiencing any pain or stiffness in your jaw? If you are, you might need to have your wisdom teeth removed. The average mouth only has enough room for the usual 28 teeth, so when these additional 4 teeth (also known as “third molars”) erupt (grow) from the gums, there are many problems that could arise if they erupt improperly. Examples of improper growth of wisdom teeth include them growing sideways, not fully erupting from the gums, or remaining trapped beneath the gum and bone. The problems that this improper growth can cause include:
- Crowding of teeth (makes it harder to clean your teeth properly)
- Shifting of teeth
- Tooth decay
- Inflammation and infection of the gums
- Growth of cysts and tumors in the mouth around infected teeth
