Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

widsom-teeth-impactedMost people accept that wisdom teeth removal will happen at some point in their life. Each case is decided on a patient-by-patient basis. For those for whom wisdom teeth extraction has been recommended, there may be many questions about why such treatment may be necessary or what the actual procedure is like.

We at Just Wright Dental in Waxahachie provide wisdom teeth extraction services.

Why do I need my wisdom teeth removed?

Wisdom teeth may potentially cause a number of oral health issues. The most common issues related to wisdom teeth are:

  • Impacted teeth: Wisdom teeth are actually a third set of molars, but most people don’t have enough space in their mouth for them. When the teeth try to grow in where there’s not enough space, they become impacted or trapped below the gum. Impacted teeth can be painful and can put increased strain on the ligaments and muscles of the jawbone.
  • Crooked teeth: Like ordinary teeth, wisdom teeth can also grow in crooked, sideways, or otherwise misaligned. Because of space issues, it might not always be possible to fix the alignment with orthodontic brackets. In situations like these, extraction is often recommended.
  • Infection: Sometimes wisdom teeth only come into the mouth part ways. When this happens, the resulting “flap” of gum tissue can trap all sorts of food and germs. These areas are hard to reach with your toothbrush, so infection can easily develop. Eventually, much more serious problems can develop that may require more expensive and extensive dental treatment.
  • Accessibility issues: Wisdom teeth can develop cavities and gum disease just like every other tooth in the mouth, but unlike the other teeth, they may be much more difficult to treat because of their location. If you are particularly vulnerable to cavities or gum disease, your dentist may recommend that you have your wisdom teeth extracted just to prevent these potential future difficulties.

The majority of dental patients fall under one of the at-risk categories listed above, which is why so many people have their wisdom teeth extracted as soon as the teeth are ready, sometimes as early as age 16.
