This third set of molars are often undetectable until they become a problem. Extracting wisdom teeth could be the best solution to resolve these issues and prevent recurring infections.
The size of your jaw will determine whether you have any issues with your wisdom teeth. When a wisdom tooth can’t get enough space to come through, it may erupt at an angle. Before too long, the impacted tooth will start pushing against another nearby molar, causing pain and irritation in your cheek or gums. Impacted teeth can lead to tooth decay, gum infection, and damage to nearby teeth. Extracting the wisdom tooth could be the best solution to resolve these issues and prevent recurring infections.
What are the risks of getting wisdom teeth extracted?
Most wisdom tooth extractions result in few or no long-term complications. The most common post-surgical issues include dry socket and infections, both of which are manageable with medication and professional treatment.
Do I need my wisdom teeth removed?
Many people get impacted wisdom teeth which is why they choose to remove them. Some don’t experience any issues with their wisdom teeth, while others can experience pain and discomfort that could lead to more severe problems.
