While wisdom teeth may have served a purpose for our cavemen ancestors, today, it’s become very common to have them removed. For most people, these teeth are capable of causing significant complications for their oral health. For example, they can lead to a misalignment of the smile, increase the risk of oral infections and decay, and even cause cysts to develop inside of the jawbone. If you’re experiencing pain in the back of your mouth, feel free to contact Dr. Patel, so we can discuss wisdom tooth extractions in Fort Worth, TX to prevent harm to your overall oral health.
The most common sign that you need to have your wisdom teeth removed is when pain appears in the back of your mouth. In most cases, the mouth is not large enough to accommodate an additional set of wisdom teeth. As many as four new molars can erupt, forcing your neighboring teeth to become crowded. Additionally, wisdom teeth can fail to erupt through the gum tissue because they become impacted or trapped underneath the existing teeth. This can allow an oral infection to easily develop, resulting in serious discomfort.
