When Is It Time to Have Wisdom Teeth Removed?


Posted on 8/22/2022 by Dr. Michael Wockenfus
When Is It Time to Have Wisdom Teeth Removed?Wisdom teeth are one of the most common tooth extractions that dentists perform. One of the most popular reasons to get your wisdom teeth removed is for the following reasons:

Nearby Teeth are Damaged


This additional eruption of molars may cause your already-positioned permanent teeth to change their position. Pain, bite issues, and overcrowding makes it challenging to floss and brush effectively, leading to tooth decay or cavities. A delay in therapy may necessitate further surgeries to correct neighboring teeth.

The Jaw is Damaged


It begins with stiffness or soreness before jawbones are damaged and the mouth's motion and function are affected. Some people's wisdom teeth do not come in as expected, especially if there is no room for them to emerge.

Due to their position in the mouth, wisdom teeth can cause the jawline and the other teeth to shift. Opening your mouth wide can be difficult, if not painful, as a result. New molars can also become infected, leading to bone loss and nerve damage if left untreated.

Infections of the Sinuses


Dentists recommend wisdom teeth extraction if the growing of these molars creates congestion, pain, and pressure in the sinus cavities. If you are concerned about your oral health, you should be concerned about your overall health.

Pain and Sensitivity


Unfortunately, wisdom teeth impaction is often discovered after the pain has become excruciating. As with any dental illness, it begins subtly and almost unnoticeably.

Even if you only feel a tingling or throbbing feeling in your teeth, do not ignore it. If discomfort occurs when you touch the back of your mouth while eating or brushing, your wisdom teeth have likely erupted.

You may notice that the teeth develop at an angle to the rest of the teeth, putting strain on your jaw or crowding other teeth. Please get in touch with us to learn about the long-term benefits of wisdom teeth removal.
