If the wisdom tooth is erupted and functional, it may not be necessary to remove it. However, in a majority of cases the jaw does not have enough room for the wisdom teeth to erupt. As a result those teeth get impacted. This may cause food impaction, pain, periodontal disease, infection, and can be associated with cysts and tumors.
So even though your wisdom teeth may not be bothering you, we recommend that you make an appointment for a consultation so that Dr. Millwala can offer his recommendations on the management of your third molars.
