Are your wisdom teeth bothering you or someone close to you? If so, our team can help. Sadly, wisdom teeth removal is something that almost everyone goes through, but can you recognize the symptoms of a problematic wisdom tooth? Similarly, do you know why some wisdom teeth need to be removed?

Luckily, there are a few signs you can watch for. One of the most common indicators of a problematic wisdom tooth is pain. Generally, this discomfort is caused by your wisdom teeth growing beneath your molars. The pain can also be caused by a tooth erupting from your gums. This discomfort should not be ignored because your wisdom teeth can damage your other teeth and even shift the position of your teeth.

Naturally, if your wisdom teeth are growing in beneath your molars, you could experience pain and even difficulty eating. Similarly, both your molar and your other teeth could be damaged. However, this isn’t the only reason to have your wisdom teeth removed. If your wisdom teeth come in crooked, they could similarly make your teeth to shift. Similarly, you’ll need to remove your wisdom teeth if they only erupt partially.
