When To Have Wisdom Teeth Extracted

Posted on 10/31/2023 by Office
Rendering of tooth extraction with dental tools at Neu Family DentalWisdom teeth often emerge in the late teens or early twenties. However, their arrival sometimes goes smoothly, and extraction might be necessary in certain cases. You will need to visit the dentist if you notice you have any signs of wisdom teeth. Below are the reasons you should consider having your wisdom teeth extracted:

Gum Swelling

Your wisdom teeth may be the source of swelling and inflammation in the area behind your mouth. Gum swelling can cause discomfort and make it challenging to thoroughly clean the area. Oral health complications could emerge from this.

Extreme pain

It may be a sign that your wisdom teeth are impacted or not erupting properly if you have severe and ongoing discomfort in the back of your mouth. Most people who encounter this ache do so near their ears. Daily tasks may be hampered by the pain, which necessitates attention.

Teeth crowding

The teeth next to wisdom teeth may experience pressure, which may cause them to move or go out of alignment. Your teeth may become crowded as a result.

Crowded teeth might affect your bite and tooth alignment. Teeth crowding can impact your bite and the alignment of your teeth. In such cases, removal might be recommended to prevent further dental problems.

Continued Cavities

Wisdom teeth are positioned at the back of the mouth, making them difficult to clean effectively. You may then experience recurrent cavities or gum infections in relation to your wisdom teeth. This calls for extraction to prevent ongoing dental issues.

Jaw Issues

The emergence of wisdom teeth can sometimes lead to cysts or tumors. This can later affect the health of your jawbone. Jaw pain, stiffness, or swelling might be indicative of such problems and may require wisdom teeth removal.
