Wisdom Teeth Removal in Lakeland, FL
What are wisdom teeth and why do people have them removed? Wisdom teeth are an additional set of molars that grow in during our adolescence. They grow in behind the four molars that you have on the upper and lower sets of your mouth. Often times, they can create issues if they grow in in an unfavorable position. This can cause pain and dental problems that are related to crowding of the teeth.
Or they can be impacted which means that they are stuck under the surface of the gum line. Rather than growing in upright- vertically, they are stuck horizontally and thus create movement pushing the rest of the mouth, causing teeth pain.
In addition to the toothache and pain it can be a breeding ground for bacteria and plaque. Sometimes even if they do not grow in favorably, they will be a long-term liability.
