Wisdom tooth pain is often caused by bacteria infecting the tooth resulting in tooth decay, nerve infection or gum infection. Often in youngsters the gum is affected which requires cleaning to remove infection, food debris and the harmful bacteria.
No. As long as your dentist give your the right advice they can be well looked after unless their position is very unfavourable. In cases like this they will have to be removed as they most likely will cause problems with the tooth in front.
Have a consultation to get your wisdom teeth assessed to get the right advice on whether the wisdom teeth need to be removed or not. In most cases they do not but it is important to have the area assessed.
If the teeth are not decayed and have deep grooved we can put a filling material into the deep grooves so bacteria do not get into the grooves and cause tooth decay. It also makes cleaning the wisdom teeth a lot easier.
