DID YOU KNOW OUR JAW SIZE IS GETTING SMALLER EVERYDAY? Changes came after the industrial revolution with a big shift in food, as we moved from farms to cities, and started having a softer diet and consuming refined foods that required less chewing. Over time, as jaws became smaller, teeth didn’t follow suit, remaining around the same size. When wisdom teeth/third molars do not get space to erupt properly, they get stuck in the bone. Such teeth are called impacted teeth. When they try to come out/erupt and are unable to do so, they cause inflammation and infection of the gums. This results in acute pain and swelling in the patient’s mouth. In such cases, these impacted teeth need to be removed by surgical extraction. At our clinic all type of tooth removal(tooth extraction) are completely painless and comfortable. Complicated surgical extractions are also carried out with utmost comfort.
