What Are Impacted Wisdom Teeth?

wisdom teeth Allen Park

When a wisdom tooth tries to come in but is obstructed by the adjacent tooth, it becomes impacted and can result in such complications as pain, inflammation, or tooth decay. At Allen Park Dental Care, we can extract wisdom teeth.

It’s challenging to clean partially-erupted wisdom teeth. Since they have a high risk of decay, we pay special attention to them. They can also cause decay in the neighboring molars.

For most people, wisdom teeth come in in the late teens or early twenties. As many as 85% of wisdom teeth need to be extracted. It is a routine outpatient procedure; most patients experience minimal discomfort and recover in a few days.

If you or your teenager has wisdom teeth that need attention, please call us at Allen Park Dental Care. People from Dearborn, Taylor, and Southgate come to us for complete family and cosmetic dentistry. Request an appointment today!
