Does anyone ever get to keep their wisdom teeth? Yes, many people do perfectly fine when their wisdom teeth emerge, typically during the late teens or early 20’s. The big mouths who can brag of getting to keep their wisdom teeth have room to spare and all their teeth get along as they should.

The rest of us? We don’t have the room. Our wisdom teeth are coming in at all sorts of foolish angles, threatening the healthy teeth we already have.

Why You Need Extraction

Smile Alignment Problems

There just may not be enough room in your jaw for wisdom teeth to squeeze in. If they attempt it, the rest of your teeth could be pushed out of alignment. Not only will your smile look a little funny, but crowded teeth are harder to keep clean. They’re more prone to tooth decay and gum disease.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text css_animation=”right-to-left” el_class=”translucent”]

Damage from Impaction

Wisdom teeth are notorious for being impacted! What that means is that they have developed below the bone in a way that they cannot erupt normally. Impaction creates a big problem if a wisdom tooth is poised to grow into the roots of the tooth in front of it. This would cause jaw pain and irreparable damage to other teeth. If your dentist notices that your wisdom teeth are not in a good position, then he or she may recommend removing them before they cause you problems.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text css_animation=”left-to-right” el_class=”translucent”]

Partial Eruption

Wisdom teeth sometimes don’t come in all the way. Part of the tooth may remain trapped under the gum tissue. This has the potential to cause big problems. The partial covering of gum tissue is prone to trapping food and bacteria. Your chances of developing gum inflammation and decay in that area increase when the tooth isn’t fully erupted. It’s usually more cost and time-efficient to remove wisdom teeth before such problems set in rather than try to treat and restore them.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text css_animation=”right-to-left” el_class=”translucent”]

Time Is Everything!

The last factor to consider is time. Perhaps your wisdom teeth aren’t bothering you now, but it may be easier to have them all removed at once. Think about it this way: would you rather have your teeth removed one by one at separate appointments as they cause painful problems at inconvenient times? Or would you rather plan a week-long staycation from work to relax and heal after a one-time surgery at a time you choose in advance?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Stop by the office of Marconi Dental Group for a complete evaluation of your wisdom teeth.
