Wisdom Teeth Removal

Remove Wisdom Teeth Now to Avoid Problems Later

Having wisdom teeth removed is an important step toward optimal oral health.

Why Dentists Recommend Having Your Wisdom Teeth Removed

Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars located in the very back of your mouth, which typically develop in the teenage years or early twenties. Oftentimes, wisdom teeth don’t have room to grow properly and can cause problems.

American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons strongly recommends that third molars be evaluated by an oral surgeon by the time a patient is a young adult in order to assess their growth, check for the presence of disease or other complications, and to suggest management options including possible removal.

Benefits of Wisdom Teeth Removal

Promote Optimal Oral Health

Wisdom teeth are not needed for normal chewing and are often hard to clean. Even wisdom teeth that seem to be problem-free can be a magnet for bacteria, infection and inflammation.

Avoid Crowding Adjacent Teeth

Erupting wisdom teeth often grow at various angles in the jaw, sometimes even horizontally. If wisdom teeth don’t have enough room to come in properly, they may crowd or damage nearby teeth.

Reduce the Chance of Gum Disease

Gum disease and inflammation associated with partially emerged wisdom teeth may lead to receding gum tissues, deterioration of the jawbone and tooth loss.

Prevent Cyst Growth

Impacted wisdom teeth can develop cysts and/or tumors near the impacted tooth that could damage the roots of nearby teeth and require extensive procedures to remove.

Why You Might Need to Have Your Wisdom Teeth Removed

In general, dental and medical professionals agree that wisdom teeth should be removed if you have:

  • Soreness or swelling in your face
  • Pathologies such as cysts or tumors
  • Pain when biting or chewing
  • Cavities that cannot be restored
  • Crowding or shifting of surrounding teeth
  • Pus or other signs of infection
