Why are wisdom teeth more difficult to remove than other teeth?

by on April 19, 2018

Wisdom teeth do not often grow in like your other teeth.

  • If the tooth is not yet erupted, it will require an incision in the tissue before accessing the tooth.
  • If your wisdom teeth are impacted, they may have a more angled position and will need to be sectioned into pieces during the removal of wisdom teeth in Melbourne.
  • Also, it is necessary to consider the wisdom teeth’s root anatomy. Wisdom teeth typically have multiple roots, and they can be shaped in a variety of ways, as well as grow separately or fused together.
  • If your wisdom teeth have irregularly shaped roots or curvature, then it can be more difficult, especially on the lower jaw, because of its relativity to the nerve.
