Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom tooth removal is necessary when there is no room to properly erupt within the mouth.

When Is Wisdom Tooth Removal Necessary?

Wisdom teeth are usually removed only if they cause problems, or are likely to become impacted.

Wisdom teeth are the last molars on each side of the upper and lower jaws and are usually the last teeth that develop in your mouth.  They usually erupt late teens or early twenties. When they align properly and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed.

When there isn’t enough room for your wisdom teeth, they can become impacted or partially  hidden underneath the surface of the gums.

This leads to dental problems like infection and can damage the tooth in front of it. The best way to avoid damage to your teeth is having your impacted wisdom teeth removed.

What it does

An impacted wisdom tooth may:

  • Grow at an angle towards the second molar
  • Grow at an angle towards the back of the mouth
  • Sometimes they grow at a right angle to the other teeth
  • Or grow straight up but stay trapped within the jawbone

The recommended treatment will be removing the wisdom teeth if it is causing pain, inflammation, swelling, bad taste, or damaging adjacent tooth. Your dentist or an oral surgeon does the wisdom tooth removal. The decision to remove your wisdom teeth will be in consultation with the dental surgeon once they examine of your mouth and jaw, and take X-rays to have a look at the positioning of the wisdom teeth.

Regular visits to the dentists is important during your teens and early 20’s. Your dentist can use X-rays to follow the progress of your wisdom teeth. Early detection of any problem makes it easier to treat.
