Detection and Treatment of Wisdom Teeth Problems

Wisdom Teeth

The wisdom teeth are an often-misunderstood topic in the world of dental health, and it is time to shed some light on the potential problems that can develop with them, methods of diagnosis for those problems, and how such issues are typically treated. By learning all you can about wisdom teeth, you will be able to ensure that you have the highest level of oral health possible and that you can avoid the painful complications that these dental latecomers can sometimes cause.

For many individuals, the presence of wisdom teeth causes few or no symptoms whatsoever. This can be true even in cases of impacted wisdom teeth. However, other patients do indeed suffer from signs that clearly point toward a need for wisdom teeth removal. Wisdom teeth pain and jaw pain or stiffness in the area of an impacted tooth is a clear signal that wisdom teeth removal may be necessary. Discomfort of the cheek, roof of the mouth or tongue resulting from an awkward protrusion of one of these teeth is yet another indicator that removal is needed. Other signs include wisdom teeth pain, increased crowding of the teeth, or tooth decay caused by an inability to reach affected areas with a toothbrush.

To determine whether there is a need for wisdom teeth removal, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of the gums as well as the teeth to check for signs of tooth eruption and crowding. X-rays will also be taken to assess whether you have impacted wisdom teeth or whether such issues are likely to emerge down the road.

When you are diagnosed with a wisdom tooth problem, there is a high probability that extraction will be the recommended course of treatment. During the wisdom teeth removal, the gums will be opened, the teeth will be extracted, and stitches will be used to close the area. In most cases, the recovery period is brief, though complications can occur and it is important to seek immediate attention if issues arise.

When patients do not have impacted wisdom teeth or are suffering no wisdom teeth pain, some dentists seem to disagree about the necessity of removal. Ultimately, having an honest discussion with your dental care professional about the pros and cons of wisdom teeth removal in your specific case is the best way to decide what to do.
