WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTION

Your wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last set of teeth to develop. While the word “wisdom” refers to the fact that these teeth usually erupt around maturity, it’s not always wise to leave them in your mouth.

WHAT EXACTLY
ARE WISDOM TEETH?

Wisdom teeth are permanent teeth located at the back of the mouth, near the entrance of your throat. They are the third and final set of molars to erupt, which starts to happen between ages of 17 to 25.

Most people have four wisdom teeth – two at the top jaw and two at the bottom, though a small percentage of the population is born without them. Like other teeth, wisdom teeth serve a purpose for biting and chewing. However, when they don’t emerge properly – or don’t emerge at all – wisdom teeth may not be functional and could require extraction.

WHY SHOULD I HAVE
MY WISDOM TEETH
REMOVED?

Because wisdom teeth are the last set of teeth to develop, sometimes the gums are not able to accommodate them. Wisdom teeth that are unable to erupt through the gum line can become impacted between the jawbone and the gums.

An impacted tooth is a tooth that becomes trapped or stuck below the gum tissue for any number of reasons. Wisdom teeth may become impacted when there isn’t enough space for them to surface or they come through in the wrong position.

It’s not always beneficial to leave wisdom teeth in your mouth, especially if they are impacted. Untreated impacted wisdom teeth can have significant oral health consequences, including:

  • Infection
  • Tumors
  • Cysts
  • Damage to other teeth
  • Crowded or misaligned teeth

You may need to have your wisdom teeth surgically removed if you are experiencing pain or swelling in or around that area.

SIGNS YOU MAY NEED
TO HAVE YOUR WISDOM
TEETH REMOVED

Sensitivity and pain

Whether it is brushing or eating, if you feel pain, sensitivity, or tenderness in the back of your mouth, you should schedule an appointment at Dr. Patty Miami to have your wisdom teeth checked. Pain is never a good sign when it comes to teeth and gums. When left untreated, even small issues can quickly become severe infections that may require a much more extensive and costly treatment.

Inflammation

When impacted wisdom teeth try to emerge, they can irritate the surrounding gums and create swollen pockets of tissue that trap food and bacteria. This can make brushing hard and painful, resulting in poor oral hygiene, bad breath, and cavities.

Sinus problems and jaw pain

Impacted wisdom teeth exert pressure on the jaw bone and surrounding teeth. This often causes jaw pain, stiffness, and headaches. Additionally, sinus issues have been linked to dental problems, including impacted wisdom teeth. If you experience recurrent congestion or pain in your sinuses, this can be a symptom that your wisdom teeth need to be extracted.
