The Right Time for Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom tooth removal is necessary when third molars become impacted, causing pain, infection, or damage to neighboring teeth. 

Additionally, we may recommend wisdom teeth removal if there is insufficient space in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to erupt properly.

Reasons to Extract Wisdom Teeth

Extracting wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, can be essential for several reasons, primarily aimed at preventing potential oral health issues or resolving existing problems. Here are some key reasons for wisdom teeth extraction:

  • Impaction: Wisdom teeth often become impacted, meaning they cannot properly emerge through the gums. This can lead to pain, swelling, and infection.
  • Overcrowding: There may need to be more room in your mouth for wisdom teeth, leading to overcrowding or misalignment of your existing teeth.
  • Gum Disease and Infections: Partially erupted wisdom teeth can create openings around the teeth that allow bacteria to grow, potentially leading to painful gum disease and infections.
  • Cysts Formation: Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to the formation of cysts in your jawbone, which can damage teeth roots and bone structure.
  • Decay: Wisdom teeth are at the back of the mouth, making them hard to clean. This can result in tooth decay, leading to further dental issues.
  • Pain and Discomfort: Even if there are no visible problems, wisdom teeth can cause pain and discomfort as they try to find room to emerge.
  • Orthodontic Reasons: To prevent the misalignment of teeth, especially if you’ve had braces or other dental alignment treatments.
