Why Wisdom Teeth Extraction is Important

Your last teeth usually appear between the ages of 17 and 21 and may cause problems.  Wisdom teeth extractions is oftentimes the only solution.

During life, there are many things that sneak up on you. A few of these things are your wisdom teeth. These are the last teeth to make an appearance in our lives, and sometimes the most problematic. Unlike with our other teeth, wisdom teeth extraction may be necessary.

Reasons for Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Although we would love to keep all our teeth, sometimes this just isn’t possible. It’s true that most of our teeth can be maintained by dental care and oral health, but with wisdom teeth, there can be issues which cannot be solved by maintenance or treatment. When it comes to wisdom teeth, sometimes wisdom teeth extraction is the only solution.

Why is Wisdom Teeth Extraction Necessary?

  • Many times, wisdom teeth extractions is a result of neglected teeth. Considering that the wisdom tooth is in the back of the mouth, dental care for this area is often overlooked or limited. This can cause decay.
  • Wisdom teeth can also grow in at odd angles. When this happens, these teeth, with their jagged edges can cut the gums or inside of the mouth. They can also cause extreme pain as well.
  • Wisdom teeth can also be trapped beneath the surface of the gum. Hence the only real solution is surgical wisdom teeth extraction.
