Reasons for Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are one of the last major physical changes marking the progression from teenager to full-fledged adult. Though there are some who find these teeth to be no trouble at all, the majority of folks will unfortunately suffer side effects that necessitate wisdom teeth removal by a dental professional. If you are in the latter category, the best thing to do is familiarize yourself with some of the most common rationales for surgical removal of the wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth removal is unnecessary with properly developed wisdom teeth that fit well with adjacent teeth, exhibit no signs of disease or cavities, and present no wisdom teeth pain. 

With impacted wisdom teeth, however, things are more complicated. Impacted wisdom teeth are those that do not erupt through the surface of the gums, due to a lack of sufficient room. Roughly 9 out of 10 individuals have one or more impacted wisdom teeth.

Impacted wisdom teeth can harm adjacent teeth and lead to dangerous infections. Given their awkward positioning, they also tend to attract bacterial buildup that hard to remove. Bacteria that enter the bloodstream can cause serious damage to the heart and kidneys or lead to the development of tumors that harm the jawbone and neighboring nerves.

When cavities are present that cannot be conventionally addressed, when cysts or tumors have developed, when wisdom teeth pain becomes significant, or when neighboring teeth begin to sustain damage, wisdom teeth removal is generally indicated.

If in doubt about the placement or condition of your wisdom teeth, consult with your family dentistry expert.
