Wisdom teeth or molars are the toughest and the last teeth that emerge in your mouth. When correctly aligned, wisdom teeth are a great addition to the mouth. Unfortunately, they are often misaligned and need removal by expert dental surgeons.
An impacted wisdom tooth, a wisdom tooth that did not fully erupt or erupt properly, could cause discomfort, damage to neighboring teeth, and other dental issues. In rare instances, impacted wisdom teeth may be present with no visible or immediate complications. However, since they are more difficult to clean than other teeth, they may be more susceptible to dental decay and gum disease.
Wisdom teeth that are impacted and causing discomfort or other dental problems are often removed. Additionally, it is better to get wisdom teeth removed even if they are not impacted to avoid future complications.
When an impacted wisdom tooth becomes infected, you may notice some of the following signs or symptoms:
Wisdom teeth are often problematic and need to be removed to avoid several oral health problems. If done correctly, wisdom teeth removal offers several benefits:
When it is found that a wisdom tooth is troublesome, extraction by an oral surgeon or a competent general dentist is generally recommended. A local anesthetic is used to guarantee that the tooth may be extracted without causing significant pain. Many individuals opt for conscious sedation during the teeth extraction process to avoid discomfort.
A small operation is then done to remove the tissue and bone around the wisdom tooth, allowing the tooth to be retrieved neatly from the socket. Numerous stitches are required to seal the surgical site and facilitate tissue recovery. You can take pain relief medication like Ibuprofen to ease pain and discomfort after wisdom tooth extraction surgery.
