Wisdom teeth can sometimes become wedged or impacted due to a lack of space in the jaw. Our dentists can perform wisdom teeth extractions as required.
Wisdom teeth are the final set of permanent teeth to appear, some people have four wisdom teeth (or third molars) while others can have two and some have none at all. If there is enough space for the new teeth to appear then there will be no problems, however when there is a lack of space within the jaw it can cause wisdom teeth to become impacted.
This generally requires wisdom teeth removal or wisdom tooth extraction.
