Do extra teeth need to be removed?

Posted on 6/6/2022 by Dr McMurray
Do extra teeth need to be removed?Having a beautiful smile and well-arranged teeth will boost your confidence in public. That is why you need to observe that you have no extra teeth in the mouth and ensure that you have that healthy smile appearance. You might observe changes in the mouth when extra teeth grow.

Shifting of teeth

When you have extra teeth growing this is likely to cause teeth shifting in the mouth. Realizing that the position of teeth has changed can cause trauma to you. However, tooth shifting might happen because the lower jaw never stops growing. The jaw grows in small bits and this can cause lower teeth to bump into the upper front teeth from the behind part and this may cause upper front teeth to space out.

Impact of the teeth

The extra teeth in the mouth can impact other teeth in the mouth. This can cause you to have crossbite, underbite, and biting issues when it comes to chewing food. Therefore, you need to ensure that the extra teeth in the mouth are extracted to ensure that you have a healthy bite and attractive appearance.

A beautiful smile, nice facial features will want you to have a good alignment of teeth and that can be if you do not have extra teeth in the mouth. The extra teeth can push the teeth, and this means that they have no place to grow in causing you to have pain as the teeth try getting a place to push their growth. Our dental team will help in the extraction of extra teeth.
