When Should Wisdom Teeth Be Extracted?

Posted on 8/23/2021 by O'Sullivan, Deluca & Ressel Dental Care
When Should Wisdom Teeth Be Extracted?The third molars, as they are popularly known, are wisdom teeth. These teeth can occasionally result in discomfort and crowding. For this reason, some people think about having them removed to prevent further oral issues. However, if your wisdom teeth are healthy, properly positioned, and fully erupted, removal is not necessary. At our clinic, we can do surgery to remove your wisdom teeth, although this usually depends on the state of your teeth. To prevent damage to the bone tissue, some people may require less time for the operation, while others may require more time.

What's the Best Age to Have Your Wisdom Teeth Removed

The development of wisdom teeth differs from person to person. For this reason, it is challenging to specify a precise time when they should be taken out. Typically, when kids are between 17 and 24, most people uproot them. It's also advisable to get rid of them as soon as they start to have issues so they can heal quickly. Other specialists advise that wisdom teeth should be extracted if you experience frequent infections, severe dental decay, tumors, cysts, gum disease, or surrounding tooth breaking.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Surgery

Before getting wisdom teeth surgery, your doctor will probably take several X-rays to see how they grow. He will make the process less painful during the surgery by giving you an anesthetic to help you relax. He will then split the teeth into four sections, that is, if your wisdom teeth have fully grown. This will allow him to remove the wisdom tooth bothering you easily.

The decision to remove wisdom teeth is not always easy to understand. You can consult with our dentist and surgeons to have your wisdom teeth examined and, if necessary, removed. They'll also make sure the placement of your other teeth is correct.
