Wisdom Teeth Extractions – Cartersville, GA
Removing Teeth That Could Harm Your Smile
The wisdom teeth helped our early human ancestors chew tough, raw foods, but in modern times, these teeth are often more trouble than they’re worth. By the time the wisdom teeth grow in behind the other teeth (usually between the ages of 17 and 25), a person rarely has room for them in their mouth. Several complications could arise from this, which is why Dr. Fadi Obeid at Family Dentistry of Bartow County often recommends wisdom tooth extractions.

When Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction Really Necessary?
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but in many cases, they could pose a serious oral health risk. If there isn’t room in your mouth to accommodate your wisdom teeth, they could become impacted, or stuck underneath the gums. This could lead to issues such as:
- Higher risk of infection
- Inflamed gum tissue
- Pressure against other teeth, pushing them out of alignment
- Oral pain and soreness
