Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that tend to appear after adolescence (when a person is more “wise” — thus the name “wisdom teeth”). Their emergence can be painful, resulting in impacted wisdom teeth or damaged tooth alignment if allowed to come in fully. In fact, wisdom teeth removal is called for in 85% of dental cases.
Why Is Wisdom Teeth Removal Necessary?
Poor alignment and impaction are the two main reasons wisdom teeth removal becomes necessary. When the final set of molars erupts (grows in) at an angle, it sometimes pushes on nearby straight teeth, altering their alignment. This is painful and can cause damage to neighboring teeth, as well as injure nerves and the jawbone. Impacted wisdom teeth result from either the last set of molars developing but failing to erupt — instead of remaining encased in the jaw’s soft tissue — or from only partially erupting, creating a passageway for bacteria to get into the soft tissue.
What Are Common Complications Associated with Wisdom Teeth?
In an effort to avoid the pain and complications associated with impacted wisdom teeth and tooth misalignment, Huntersville dentists Drs. Amit Ganglani, Joti Johal, and Richard Dunning ’s approach to your family’s ongoing dental health care plan will include the monitoring and removal of wisdom teeth. Typically, the earlier the need for wisdom teeth removal is identified, the better; early removal can prevent damage to neighboring healthy teeth, bone, gum tissue, nerves, and blood vessels.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Does everyone need to get their wisdom teeth removed?
A: Some have the fortune of avoiding problems such as impacted wisdom teeth altogether, but in the worst cases, gum infections, jawbone cysts, and bone loss can occur. Therefore, Drs. Ganglani, Johal, and Dunning often recommend wisdom teeth removal.
Q: At what age should I have my wisdom teeth removed?
A: Though there is no “right” age to have your wisdom teeth removed, the surgery and healing from it are much easier at a younger age. Wisdom teeth extraction is typically recommended between the ages of 12 and 25. Removal may become necessary if Drs. Ganglani, Johal, and Dunning see potential for complications should the teeth begin to grow in.
