Wisdom Tooth Removal

Many people decide to undergo wisdom tooth extraction procedures in Singapore. Removal of wisdom teeth is the most common oral surgery procedures and it offers protection for one’s overall oral health.

During adolescent, most people’s third molars begin to erupt through the gum line at the very back of their mouths. In many cases, the jaw space cannot accommodate these wisdom teeth, leading to either crowding of existing teeth or impaction of the teeth in question. Removing crowded teeth is important as they can misalign your bite, cause jaw pain and other dental problems. There is also a chance that impacted wisdom tooth may grow at a wrong angle into neighboring tooth or stop growing even though it has only partially emerged from the gum. This can result in pain and swelling if the tooth is infected or if there is tooth decay due to trapped food.
