Reasons for Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the upper and lower third molars, located at the very back of the mouth. They are called wisdom teeth because usually they come in between ages 17 and 21-when a person is old enough to have gained some wisdom. Here are some reasons to remove wisdom teeth.

  • Wisdom teeth break through your gums because of a lack of space. This can cause a flap of gum tissue to grow over them. The flap can trap food and lead to gum infection.
  • Wisdom teeth may contribute to crowding of nearby teeth.
  • They are so far back or crowded that you have trouble cleaning around them.
  • Gum disease and inflammation associated with wisdom teeth may lead to receding gum tissues, deterioration of the jawbone and tooth loss.
  • Oral inflammation associated with wisdom teeth may contribute to preterm or low birth weight infants.
  • You feel chronic pain in the gums near the wisdom tooth.
  • The teeth do not emerge straight. If these teeth erupt fully but come out sideways, they could cause your other teeth to shift over time.
  • Cyst develops around your wisdom tooth. It could ruin the surrounding structures like tooth roots or bone.
  • Most importantly, it gives you peace of mind.

Once you’ve decided to go through wisdom teeth removal, it is important to consult with a wisdom teeth removal specialist for better results.
