Wisdom Teeth Removal
Serving McMinnville and Surrounding Areas of Oregon
The third molars, which are commonly called the wisdom teeth, are typically the last teeth to come in. Because they are the last to erupt, there is often not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in as they should. When there is not sufficient space for the wisdom teeth, they may become impacted (unable to fully break through the gum tissues and jawbone), or they may grow in at an incorrect angle.
Wisdom teeth that do not erupt as they should can lead to several dental problems, such as:
- Disturbing the natural tooth alignment or orthodontic treatment
- Damage to the neighboring teeth
- Tooth decay
- Infection and inflammation in the gums and other tissues
- The formation of cysts
- Damage to the jawbone
At Evans Street Dental Center, we understand the damage that can occur when the wisdom teeth begin to come in. Because of the lack of space in your mouth, wisdom teeth can cause overcrowding, misalignment and even infection. Dr. Natalya Ramsay provides wisdom teeth extractions to help prevent these problems from occurring and keep your mouth and smile healthy.
