Wisdom teeth erupt later in life, and their arrival is not something we tend to celebrate. As they move into position, they can create several issues for neighboring teeth. Those problems can include issues with pressure on neighboring teeth, damage to their enamel, and even problems with spacing. As your wisdom teeth
—also known as third molars—meet resistance due to a lack of space, they can become impacted, leading to a more difficult removal. Fortunately, the problem can be addressed before complications occur. At our Richmond, VA dentist's office
, we help patients who need their third molars extracted. When necessary, we can provide oral surgery to ensure that teeth are properly accessed and removed before they create difficulties for you.
