Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge in our late teens or early twenties. Their name derives from the belief that with age comes wisdom, and indeed, these teeth arrive when we’re transitioning into adulthood. 

However, their emergence is not always a smooth process. At Illume Dental, we offer specialized care in wisdom teeth removal, ensuring that our patients’ oral health remains uncompromised.

Why Consider Wisdom Teeth Removal?

  1. Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Often, there’s inadequate space at the back of the mouth for wisdom teeth to emerge properly. This can lead to teeth becoming ‘impacted’, where they either remain trapped beneath the gum tissue or partially emerge. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, swelling, and infection.
  2. Misalignment: Wisdom teeth can push neighboring teeth out of their correct position, leading to bite issues and cosmetic concerns.
  3. Cysts or Tumors: In some instances, impacted wisdom teeth can lead to the formation of cysts or, more rarely, tumors. This can result in damage to the jawbone and other teeth.
  4. Gum Disease & Decay: Partially erupted wisdom teeth can be challenging to clean due to their location at the back of the mouth. This makes them more susceptible to gum disease and decay.
