"Extracting teeth, especially compromised wisdom teeth, is often a job for a specialist. And often, removal of any tooth or broken parts of the root of a tooth requires the specific attention of a periodontist.
This is especially true with wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth can cause pain, infection, gum disease and damage. Since the are positioned in the back of the mouth , it is difficult to maintain proper oral care. Sometimes their position impinges on adjacent teeth causing decay and damage. Therefore, wisdom teeth need to be carefully monitored and if necessary surgically removed.
