The Importance of Routine Assessment of the Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth

The very name implies a sort of rite of passage, a marker of adulthood, but the emergence of the wisdom teeth is anything but glamorous. For a majority of the population, the third molars that emerge in the back of the mouth between the ages of 17 and 25, are a significant source of oral health issues, causing wisdom teeth pain, infection, and even tooth decay and gum disease. It is estimated that 85 percent of adults will require wisdom teeth removal at some point in their lives to protect their oral health.

Your dental care professional can help you assess the positioning of your wisdom teeth to determine if removal is necessary. Wisdom teeth removal is often recommended by family dentistry professionals as a preventive measure to avoid future complications. Even if you are not experiencing wisdom teeth pain or impacted wisdom teeth just yet, your dentist may advise removal.

Early removal assures that the procedure is safe and minimizes potential issues. Wisdom teeth removal is much simpler in young adults, because the bone and tissue are less dense. Wisdom teeth removal at an older age often requires an extended period of healing.

If you have being experiencing wisdom teeth discomfort, it may be a sign something is wrong. Wisdom teeth pain can be a result of the following:

Tooth decay occurs when food and harmful oral bacteria combine to forms acid that erodes the tooth enamel. The wisdom teeth are at great risk because of their location in the back of the mouth, making them difficult to clean thoroughly.

Gum disease can occur if the wisdom teeth are not properly cared for and bacteria erode the tissues surrounding the teeth and jawbone.

Infection occurs most often with partially impacted wisdom teeth. Because the area is difficult to reach for cleaning, bacteria can build-up leading to infection. Food and debris can get stuck in tissue between the partially emerged tooth and the gums or surrounding teeth.

Damage to surrounding teeth can occur if the mouth is too small to accommodate the additional teeth or if the wisdom teeth emerge crooked, taking up more space than necessary as they emerge.
