Problems with Wisdom Teeth

If you're suffering from pain from wisdom teeth in Alpharetta, you're certainly not alone. When many people visit a dentist to explore possible causes of dental discomfort, they discover that they have wisdom teeth that have only partially erupted or improperly erupted. This is why a family dentistry team will commonly recommend extracting the wisdom teeth before they become a problem.

As you'll learn by watching this interview with a dentist, infections are a common problem with wisdom teeth. When a wisdom tooth fails to fully erupt, it creates an opening through which bacteria can enter. This can lead to an infection, pain, and swelling. Additionally, wisdom teeth can sometimes erupt sideways, which can also lead to pain and infection.
