When is wisdom teeth removal necessary and why?
Wisdom teeth appear last in the mouth. They usually erupt without enough space to develop normally, which requires a procedure to have them pulled out. This is to avoid potential infections, gum diseases and keep your teeth aligned. Wisdom teeth are also at a higher risk of tooth decay because they are inaccessible and cannot be easily cleaned.
Some people never develop wisdom teeth. Others do develop them but they grow normally and cause no problems.
When is wisdom teeth extraction needed?
Most of the time, wisdom teeth extraction doesn’t cause complications. However, you should book a consultation if you have:
- Swollen gums
- Bleeding gums
- Bad breath
- Jaw pain
- Difficulty opening your mouth
An impacted wisdom tooth may partially emerge with only the crown visible to the eye. Sometimes, it may even not break through the gums, but that can still cause complications. In such cases, your oral surgeon will assess the situation and plan the extraction accordingly.
Why do people need wisdom teeth removal?
- Crowded teeth: A wisdom tooth might not have enough room in the mouth. Keeping it will damage nearby teeth.
- Inflamed gum: Around the area where the wisdom tooth is erupting, the gum tissue might swell. This makes it harder to clean and easier for cavities to grow, making your oral health neglected.
- Cavities When the gum is swollen, it creates pockets between the teeth which help bacteria growth and infections spread.
How do they remove wisdom teeth and how is it performed?
A Sunnyvale specialist will assess the situation and recommend the ideal procedure for the extraction. In most cases, x-rays are done to provide the surgeon with a complete picture and the signs of damage done.
Wisdom teeth removal
If the tooth has broken through the gum, a periodontist will work to carefully widen the tooth socket before taking it out. In some cases, the tooth wouldn’t have come through the gum, and this is when the dentist does a small incision to be able to access the tooth and pull it out. Our team of specialists work hard so you don’t feel any discomfort during the procedure. However, in case you have the slightest pain sensation, your dentist will suggest anesthesia to help you relax.
Such a procedure can take just minutes and you’re done!
Once the oral surgery is done, your dentist will give you the prescription needed and might prescribe some antibiotics to avoid infections. In the case where an incision has been made, stitches that were done to seal your gum will take around 10 days to be dissolved.
