The goal of modern dentistry is to prevent tooth loss. When a tooth cannot be saved, extraction (removal) of the tooth may be the only course of treatment. A tooth that is very decayed or damaged or loose because of gum disease may have to be extracted. Some teeth are more difficult to take out than others because of the size, shape, position in the mouth or the shape of their roots, therefore may require specialist help.
Wisdom teeth (third molars) are the last teeth to come through. They may not erupt, or emerge from the gums until your late teens or early twenties if they erupt at all. Most often, they're impacted or trapped in the jawbone and gums usually because there's not enough room for them in your mouth.
If impacted wisdom teeth cause problems like infection, pain or decay, their removal by a Specialist may be recommended.
