Wisdom teeth removal

In Islamabad

Wisdom teeth, also called third molars are at the very back of your mouth. These teeth are the last to develop. Most jaws do not have enough space to allow them to achieve a functioning position with the rest of your teeth as they erupt in an unfavourable direction to the other teeth or get stuck in the jaw or under the gum

We recommend removal of all worrisome wisdom teeth between the ages of 17 and 25, especially in people who have the following signs and symptoms

Ongoing bad breath
Pain and tenderness
Unpleasant taste
Swelling or bleeding of your gums especially at the back of your mouth
Difficulty opening your mouth

Problematic Wisdom Teeth, if not removed can result in further problems like

Extensive gum disease
Damage to adjacent teeth
Bone loss which can result in mobile teeth
Formation of cysts in the jaw
