Possible Problems Caused by Wisdom Teeth
Even when you don’t necessarily have tooth pain, teeth extraction may be important for preventative dentist treatment. When left in the mouth, impacted teeth could become infected, damage other teeth, or lead to gum disease. Because the third molar area is more difficult to keep clean, bacteria can travel from your mouth to your bloodstream where it could possibly cause problems by infecting the kidneys, heart, or other organs.
Additionally, when periodontal disease develops in the wisdom tooth areas, the issue will persist and progress but could improve after teeth extraction. Even in some instances, a cyst or tumor could form around the bottom of the impacted wisdom tooth. As cyst or tumor progresses, it could lead to other serious problems, such as hollowing out your jaw and damaging surrounding teeth, nerves, and other structures.

The Missouri Dental Board and the ADA do not recognize the treatment of TMJ (neuromuscular dentistry) or cosmetic dentistry as a specialty. Further, the ADA does not require any additional training of dentists who perform or advertise these procedures. Dr. Quigless practices general dentistry in St. Louis, Missouri but he has many continuing education hours in cosmetic and TMJ therapy procedures at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Education.
