Sometimes saving a tooth might not be possible despite all our expertise and best efforts. You may have a badly broken tooth or an infected tooth. Your wisdom teeth might be painful and keep flaring up. In such cases, removing the problem tooth is the best option.

What are wisdom teeth?

Your wisdom teeth are at the back of your jaw. They’re your third set of molars. Some people have problems or complications with their wisdom teeth and the teeth need to be removed.

The issues you may experience with your wisdom teeth include decay, impacted teeth, infection or misalignment.
