Wisdom Teeth – Should They Always Be Extracted?

dca-blog_tooth-extraction-female-patient

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure that may require local or general anesthesia. It may not be necessary to have your wisdom teeth removed. If they are fully erupted, healthy, positioned correctly and can be easily cleaned, they can be treated just like any other teeth. When your wisdom teeth or third molars become fully or partially impacted because they do not have room to grow or grow at odd angles, they can cause serious problems and, in most cases, wisdom teeth removal is necessary to prevent future complications.

When Wisdom Tooth Removal is Required

Impacted wisdom teeth may emerge through the gums partially, or they may remain completely encased inside your jaw beneath bone and gum tissue. If they emerge partially, they create a passageway that can predispose them to future problems. The area is difficult to see and clean properly, so it becomes a magnet for plaque and bacteria that cause infection, tooth decay, and gum disease. Dentists often recommend removal of healthy wisdom teeth that partially emerge, or grow near the nerve in the lower jaw. Many dental experts believe it is wise to remove wisdom teeth before their roots are fully formed. Younger patients recover faster from surgery, which is why many teens have wisdom teeth removal before they have a chance to become well rooted in their jaws.

7 Signs of Problematic Wisdom Teeth

Sometimes it isn’t clear whether wisdom teeth removal is necessary. Only your dentist or oral surgeon can determine the position and health of your wisdom teeth and decide what is best for you.

Wisdom tooth extraction is usually performed when you have some of the following seven signs of problem wisdom teeth:

  1. Repeated gum infections around wisdom tooth
  2. Mouth pain
  3. Fluid-filled cysts
  4. Damage to neighboring teeth
  5. Gingivitis or periodontitis
  6. Severe tooth decay
  7. Tumor formation
