Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Civilization and the changes in the dietary habits have led to space discrepancies in the mouth not allowing sufficient space for the 3rd molars (commonly called ‘wisdom teeth’) to erupt into the right place. This causes the 3rd molars to become abnormally angulated during its eruption or in some cases, the 3rd molars might not be able to erupt at all.
This can cause food accumulation, bad odour from the mouth, decay, damage to the adjacent teeth. In order to eliminate this, it is recommended that the 3rd molars are extracted in indicated cases.
