Having your wisdom teeth taken out is a preventative measure with several important benefits:
1. Protect your smile
As the wisdom teeth erupt from the gums, they can damage or push neighboring teeth out of the way. Surgery eliminates this risk.
2. Prevent pain and discomfort
Your wisdom teeth may be “impacted” (incapable of emerging from the gums). Over time, their development beneath the surface can cause soreness, swelling, and inflammation.
3. Safeguard your teeth
In some cases, an impacted wisdom tooth can develop a tumor or cyst around the lining. This can permanently damage nearby healthy teeth and surrounding bone.
Salt Lake County and Utah County patients who have their wisdom teeth extracted in their teens can avoid these complications later in life.
