Wisdom Tooth Removal – Is It Necessary?

dca-blog_tooth-extraction-female-patient

Many people have their wisdom teeth or third molars removed to correct problems or prevent them, but surgical removal is not always necessary. If your wisdom teeth are healthy and properly oriented in your jaw, and they have plenty of room to erupt fully, you can probably treat them the same way you would any other tooth. Unfortunately, wisdom teeth have a reputation for causing trouble. Your dentist will probably recommend wisdom tooth removal if your wisdom teeth are trapped or impacted inside your jaw, growing in at an angle or causing symptoms.

Sometimes Wisdom Teeth Removal is Required

Impacted wisdom teeth may emerge through the gums partially, or they may remain completely encased inside your jaw beneath bone and gum tissue. If they emerge partially, they create a passageway that can predispose them to future problems. The area is difficult to see and clean properly, so it becomes a magnet for plaque and bacteria that cause infection, tooth decay, and gum disease. Dentists often recommend removing healthy wisdom teeth that partially emerge, or grow near the nerve in the lower jaw. Many dental experts believe it is wise to remove wisdom teeth before their roots are fully formed. Younger patients recover faster from surgery; this is why many teens have wisdom teeth removal before they have a chance to become well rooted in their jaws.

Symptoms of Problem Wisdom Teeth

It’s not always clear whether wisdom teeth should be removed or left in place. Only your dentist or oral surgeon can determine the position and health of your third molars, and decide what is best for your individual situation. Wisdom tooth extraction is usually performed when the following signs and symptoms occur:

  • Mouth pain
  • Fluid-filled cysts
  • Tumor formation
  • Damage to neighboring teeth
  • Repeated gum infections around wisdom tooth
  • Gingivitis or periodontitis
  • Severe tooth decay
