What Are Impacted Wisdom Teeth?

wisdom teeth Salt Lake City

When a wisdom tooth tries to come in, but is obstructed by the adjacent tooth, it becomes impacted and can result in such complications as pain, inflammation, or tooth decay. At The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City, we can extract wisdom teeth.

It’s challenging to clean partially-erupted wisdom teeth. Since they have a high risk of decay, we pay special attention to them. They can also cause decay in the neighboring molars.

For most people, wisdom teeth come in in the late teens or early twenties. As many as 85% of wisdom teeth need to be extracted. It is a routine outpatient procedure; most patients experience minimal discomfort and recover in a few days.

If you or your teenager has wisdom teeth that need attention, please call us at The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City. People from Millcreek and Holladay come to us for complete family and restorative dentistry. Request an appointment today!
