Key Reasons for Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom Teeth

Because they are the third and final group of molars to appear, the emergence of the wisdom teeth is viewed as something of a last milestone in the process of growing into an adult. Though some people have no issues whatsoever with these teeth as they grow older, most folks experience one or more complications that make wisdom teeth removal necessary. The good news is that the process is now so common that there really is little to fear.

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

However, in the case of impacted wisdom teeth, things get a little more complicated. Impacted wisdom teeth are ones that do not erupt through the surface of the gums, simply due to a lack of sufficient room. Roughly 9 out of 10 individuals have one or more impacted wisdom teeth.

Impacted wisdom teeth have the potential to harm adjacent teeth and to acquire dangerous infections. Given their typically awkward positioning in the mouth, 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.

Wisdom teeth removal is generally indicated 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.

When in doubt about the status, placement or condition of your wisdom teeth, be sure to consult with your dentist immediately.
