Is it necessary to remove wisdom teeth?

When we are adolescents there are several changes in our body and one of this are the appearance of wisdom teeth. However, there are people who live with wisdom teeth without feeling pain or discomfort, so, is it necessary to remove wisdom teeth?

Your dentist should be able to monitor the development of the molar and see if it will sprout out on the correct angle and/or it will end up impacted into the second molar. This is when your dentist might have to take action.

When is it necessary to remove wisdom teeth?

When wisdom teeth cause problems, or X-rays show they might down the line, they need to come out. Other good reasons to take them out include:

  • Damage to other teeth: That extra set of molars can push your other teeth around, causing mouth pain and bite problems.
  • Jaw damage: Cysts can form around the new teeth. If they aren’t treated, they can hollow out your jaw and damage nerves.
  • Sinus Issues: Problems with wisdom teeth can lead to sinus pain, pressure, and congestion.
  • Inflamed Gums: Tissue around the area can swell and may be hard to clean.
  • Cavities: Swollen gums can create pockets between teeth that help bacteria grow and cavities form.
  • Alignment: Impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems with crowding of other teeth and even make treatment to straighten other teeth necessary.

The way a dentist extracts wisdom teeth can vary depending on the case. If there is already inflammation, antibiotics might be required previous to the procedure. If the tooth is not impacted, the doctor will make an incision on the flap to reveal the affected area and elevate the tooth. The flaps are then re-positioned and sutures are made. The sutures will dissolve and the area will heal.
