What are Wisdom Teeth?

wisdom teeth are the last set of molars that you’ll most likely develop in your late teens or early twenties. As your third, and final set of molars, a number of problems can arise with them, as there isn’t always room left in the jaw to accommodate them.

However, if they’re healthy and properly aligned, they can be a valuable asset to your mouth.

Do You Need to Have Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?

A lot of people will experience pain and discomfort when their wisdom teeth start to come in. This is usually because your jaw is either too small, or because the tooth has been impacted.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Impacted wisdom teeth are troublesome for a number of reasons. These wisdom teeth don’t fully break the gum, usually because they’ve developed on a slight or full angle and are blocked by other teeth.

If the wisdom teeth aren’t able to find an opening in the mouth to fully grow, wisdom tooth pain can develop, signalling the beginning of inflammation, infection and even damage to the adjacent tooth.

When this happens, the wisdom tooth needs to be extracted.

What are the Benefits of Having Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Wisdom teeth removal comes with a host of benefits, especially in terms of pain relief, and long-term dental care.

  • Impacted wisdom teeth often accumulate plaque, food particles and debris, which is a common cause of tooth decay. This decay can affect both the wisdom tooth and the adjacent molar and can cause a host of long-term dental issues. Removing the wisdom tooth eliminates this issue.
  • Wisdom teeth removal is the only guaranteed way to relieve pain permanently.
  • Impacted wisdom teeth that aren’t removed can cause gum disease, which can negatively impact your entire mouth. By having your wisdom teeth removed you’ll be protecting yourself from a lot of pain, and eliminating the need for extensive, ongoing dental work.
