The need for surgery to remove the wisdom tooth can be caused by one reason-the wrong direction of its growth. If the wisdom tooth grows in the wrong direction, it will injure adjacent tissues and the roots of adjacent teeth. It can grow towards the jaw, adjacent tooth or away from it, causing discomfort turning into pain.
The whole difficulty lies in the fact that not only incorrectly growing teeth can put pressure on neighbors, but they can exert pressure and prevent it from growing. Interfere with the wisdom tooth can not only teeth standing next to, but also bones and even gums. Therefore, if the tooth begins to erupt and encounters resistance – you get hurt, while inside the inflammatory processes begin. If wisdom teeth have problems with the direction of growth, it can cause a number of inconveniences: pain when chewing, the risk of displacement of adjacent teeth and inflammation in the gum. The priority method of treatment in this case is removal. First of all, the main thing to do is to consult a doctor when the first symptoms appear-bleeding and pain. Experienced doctors of our clinic will determine whether to try to treat the tooth or simply remove it.
