Do You Need to Say Goodbye to Your Wisdom Teeth?

If you are a young adult between the ages of 17 and 21, it may be time to meet your wisdom teeth. These teeth, also called third molars, erupt later than the rest and sometimes there isn’t enough room in your mouth for them to grow in normally. They may erupt only partially, or grow in sideways. In some cases, they can’t erupt at all and become trapped or impacted inside your jaw. Even before they erupt, a wisdom teeth dentist can examine your third molars to determine if they are positioned properly, or if you require tooth extractions to prevent problems.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Your wisdom teeth may need to be removed if they are causing any of the following problems:

  • Infection
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Tooth or jaw pain
  • Fluid-filled cysts
  • Solid tumors
  • Damage to neighboring teeth

An affordable dentist or oral surgeon may recommend wisdom tooth extractions even if the teeth are not causing any problems. This is to prevent problems later in life when extractions would be more complicated and your nerves would not heal as easily. Tooth extractions can also be part of a restoration process or orthodontic treatment plan.

If you keep your wisdom teeth, you’ll need to be sure your dentist monitors them for potential problems, since your mouth changes over the years. As you age, your risk of developing issues with your wisdom teeth increases. Be sure to see your dentist in Florida regularly to maintain good oral health.
