When wisdom teeth are misaligned or impacted, the time is now to get them removed to avoid disrupting your child’s school year.
There are times when wisdom teeth are an important asset. For example, when they are healthy and properly aligned. More often than not, however, children’s wisdom teeth grow in misaligned. The molars may grow at a horizontal angle, shifting too much toward or too far away from the second molars. They may grow inward toward the mouth or outward toward the cheek. Wisdom teeth can crowd or harm neighboring teeth as well as case damage to the jawbone or nerves.
Children’s wisdom teeth are also frequently known to become impacted. It is very common for the soft tissues of the mouth and gums to more deeply envelope them than the other molars, causing only partial eruption. This partial eruption invites bacteria, causing infection in the wisdom tooth. The results are pain, swelling, jaw stiffness, and can lead to an overall feeling of illness. And because they are hard to reach during regular daily brushing and flossing, partially erupted wisdom teeth are more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.
When any of these situations happen, wisdom teeth removal is the best course of action. Give us a call or book an appointment online by clicking the link below!
