A crooked tooth can impact the growth of its adjacent teeth. A tooth erupting at an incorrect position in the mouth can lead to overlapped or overcrowded teeth. In both cases, a tooth extraction may be needed.
After achieving a thorough understanding of your dental and medical history, the dentist will begin the procedure. Your mouth will be numbed to make the extraction as pain-free as possible. In some cases, a sedative may be given to relieve the patient of any anxiety and make them comfortable.
Wisdom teeth or third molars are the last set of teeth to develop. As a result, there may be a lack of space in the jaw for them to emerge at the correct position. At times, they do not fully break the surface of the gum – these are referred to as impacted wisdom teeth.
