When Should Wisdom Teeth Be Removed?

Posted on 12/23/2021 by Lanier Valley Dentistry
Many people are not sure when they should have their wisdom teeth removed. It is important to remember that there are specific times during your life where it becomes necessary to have them removed. Below you will find a list of the different ages and reasons you need to remove your wisdom teeth. What is a wisdom tooth, and what does it do for you? A wisdom tooth is an extra or third molar that usually erupts in the late teens and early 20's. If it doesn't come in on its own after this time period, you may need to have surgery called a “wisdom teeth removal" procedure to remove it. Wisdom teeth are responsible for chewing and biting, but they are often malformed due to the lack of space in your mouth. When should wisdom teeth be removed? The main reason for removing a wisdom tooth is because it can cause pain and swelling if they are impacted or growing at an awkward angle into the other molars around them, which makes it difficult to chew or brush your teeth normally. The food that gets stuck in between them can also become rotten and cause serious gum infections. People who have a high risk of developing periodontal disease or dental decay should really consider having their wisdom teeth removed so they don't get infected, which could be potentially very dangerous to your health if not treated right away. Wisdom tooth extractions can also be necessary if you have overcrowding in your mouth or jaw. Having too many teeth crowded together will make it difficult for them all to fit and may damage other healthy teeth around them, leading to tooth decay or damage. Wisdom teeth are often removed to make it easier for you to take care of your oral hygiene and overall health. Still, if they aren't causing any problems, there isn't really a reason that needs immediate attention. However, if you notice any problems with your wisdom teeth, like pain or swelling, see us right away to rule out serious health issues. If you need us to take a look at your wisdom teeth, reach out to us on (number), and we'll be glad to assist in any way we can. ...
