Wisdom tooth extractions are a common procedure that can massively benefit the long-term oral health of a patient.
Also known as the third molar, the wisdom tooth can appear at different ages: in some people, wisdom teeth grow during the teenage years, while in other people wisdom teeth don't appear until they reach their late 20s. Wisdom tooth removal is a very common dental procedure and it is usually performed when the tooth becomes impacted or it starts to grow sideways.
Wisdom tooth removal can help remove pain & free up space in a patient's mouth.
There are many reasons why patients opt for wisdom tooth removal. Common reasons for wisdom tooth extractions include:
Bleeding gums caused by the wisdom tooth not having enough room to grow
Wisdom teeth erupting horizontally inside the jaw#
Wisdom tooth ache
Wisdom tooth infection
The wisdom tooth only erupting partially (which can also cause pain)
Crowed area around the wisdom tooth which leads to gum disease
For some patients, none of these issues will ever be present as wisdom teeth affect us all differently. However, if you have severe pain in the back of your mouth, it is likely being caused by a wisdom tooth.
So, how and when should patients deal with wisdom tooth pain?
Some dentists recommend their patients to have their wisdom teeth extracted even before the root is formed: the younger the patient, the easier and less painful the procedure. However, if the tooth has started to emerge already and the patient experiences repeated gum infections, mouth pain, tooth decay or damage to the nearby teeth, then then immediate removal is recommended, no matter what age you may be.
