Wisdom Tooth Extraction

The tooth that develops at the end of your jaw is a wisdom tooth. But there may or may not be enough space in your mouth for those teeth. Wisdom teeth are considered vestigial and are not used for chewing food. If the wisdom tooth is growing at an angle, it can be painful. You may not be able to chew your food properly as it causes frequent pain and swelling in that area. At our clinic, you can get rid of wisdom teeth by best doctors in the most comfortable environment.

In some cases, when the wisdom tooth grows at an angle, it can also make the neighbouring tooth weak. People also complain of trapping food on the surface of their wisdom teeth. If this problem is neglected, you may have to face more serious problems like tooth decay.
