Wisdom tooth extraction

What is a wisdom tooth extraction?

Wisdom tooth extraction

 

Wisdom teeth are the back most teeth, sometimes called third molars. These are the teeth to erupt last of all, and these are also the teeth that cause the most problems throughout life. Not only are they problematic because of their precarious position, but they also frequently grow irregularly, which causes pain and swelling.
Wisdom teeth that are completely erupted are also problematic as they are difficult to reach and are more likely to develop carries. They also sometimes grow sideways into the teeth next to them, which leads to aesthetic and functional problems. Wisdom teeth are generally removed in one of these situations 

  1. Their position makes them difficult to clean, and they are at a heightened risk of tooth decay, which can lead to severe pain and swelling.
  2. Wisdom teeth have a tendency to push the other teeth together, and create crowding. This can only be remedied with orthodontic treatment, during which the wisdom teeth have to be pulled.
  3. Impacted, partially erupted or even horizontally growing wisdom teeth are not uncommon. Wisdom tooth extraction is needed to avoid pain, swelling and possibly lockjaw.

Healthy, well positioned wisdom teeth can have an important role in chewing, their extraction is only necessary if they pose a risk to the patient’s health.
