Wise Decisions for Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth

They wait patiently until you’re older and wiser. They’re your wisdom teeth. Also called third molars, these teeth appear in your mouth when you’re between the ages of 17 and 25. If they erupt completely and they’re healthy, pain-free, and positioned appropriately, you shouldn’t have a problem with them. Just keep them clean, and get regular dental check-ups and X-rays. Unfortunately, if you have impacted wisdom teeth, this can lead to wisdom teeth pain and other serious problems. In most cases, wisdom teeth removal becomes necessary.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

About 90 percent of people have at least one impacted wisdom tooth. Impacted wisdom teeth cannot erupt normally because of their position in the jaw. They can place pressure on adjacent teeth, and often cause serious damage or infection. Since the area is difficult to clean, the spread of oral bacteria is likely. If bacteria invade your bloodstream, major organs like your heart and kidneys can be affected. It’s also common for a fluid-filled cyst to form around an impacted tooth. Cysts can be serious if they begin to damage the jawbone or affect nearby nerves.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

 Removal

Usually if you have periodontal gum disease, oral infections, untreatable cavities, cysts, tumors, or damage to other teeth, an oral surgeon should remove your impacted wisdom teeth. To remove impacted wisdom teeth, the surgeon makes an incision in the gum and extracts the teeth by removing bony tissues as necessary. It may take several weeks to recover fully from the wisdom teeth removal, but full recovery with few complications is the usual outcome.
