Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth or third molars erupt at the back corners of your mouth. They are usually the last four permanent teeth. They normally appear between 17 to 25 years of age. Though not everyone develops a problem with its eruption, some may experience pain or restricted mouth opening, requiring its removal.
The obstruction prevents the wisdom teeth from erupting into the mouth, either partially or completely and the tooth remains impacted. Impacted teeth can lead to caries, gum problems, infection, and pain. The pain from the third molars can radiate from the gums to the ear, jaw, and side of the face. In most cases, an impacted wisdom tooth causes damage to the adjacent tooth.
Wisdom teeth are the most common teeth that often remain impacted and do not erupt normally into the oral cavity. The reasons range from lack of space, abnormal position of the tooth, abnormal angulation of the roots, to mismatched-tooth-jaw-size.
The Treatment Approach for Impacted Wisdom Teeth
The first line treatment option to prevent complications from impacted wisdom teeth removal. This eliminates future complications and possible dental emergencies. Complications from impaction cause tooth decay, gum infections (pericoronitis), jaw swelling, restricted mouth opening, fever and difficulty in swallowing food.
Sometimes it can harbor the disease-causing bacteria, without any symptoms. It is often difficult to exactly predict the type of future problems with impacted wisdom teeth.
