Wisdom teeth are extracted for two general reasons: either the wisdom teeth have already
become impacted, or the wisdom teeth could potentially become problematic if not extracted.
Potential problems caused by the presence of improperly grown-in wisdom teeth include
infections caused by food particles easily trapped in the jaw area behind the wisdom teeth,
where regular brushing and flossing is difficult and ineffective. Such infections may be
frequent and cause considerable pain and medical danger. Another reason to have a wisdom
tooth removed is if the tooth causes the tongue to brush up against it. In our office, a wisdom
teeth extraction can be done under sedation.
