Wisdom Teeth Complications

Wisdom Teeth

It is estimated that 85 percent of adults will require wisdom teeth removal at some point in their lives. Wisdom teeth can lead to serious complications if not carefully monitored and addressed. Talk to your dentist and ensure that you get routine monitoring of your wisdom teeth. With special screening, your dentist can view your wisdom teeth, even if they have not emerged above the gum line. He or she can determine if you have impacted wisdom teeth or if they will emerge straight and completely or, make recommendations for wisdom teeth removal if they are expected to cause complications. Your family dentistry expert can advise you if wisdom teeth removal is essential to your long-term health.

Wisdom Teeth Problems

Some people may not experience any wisdom teeth pain despite complications with the teeth. These signs and symptoms, while sometimes subtle, can let you know when it might be time to talk to your dentist about wisdom teeth removal:

  • Discomfort from a tooth emerging at an awkward angle and rubbing against your cheek or tongue.
  • Development of an infection where a partially impacted wisdom tooth may have emerged.
  • Stiffness of the jaw or wisdom teeth pain.
  • Teeth begin to shift due to crowding in the mouth.
  • Development of tooth decay or gum disease due to inability to clean teeth.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

  • It is a common belief among many oral surgeons that impacted wisdom teeth should be removed by the age of 20 to prohibit further complications. As you age, the surgery becomes more difficult, making the risk greater and recovery more intensive.
  • There are a number of dentists who believe wisdom teeth should remain in place until at least the age of 30, unless they are causing the patient problems.
  • There is no concrete evidence in favor of or staunchly against preventive wisdom teeth removal.

If you have diseased or impacted wisdom teeth, or wisdom teeth pain, they should be removed. The procedure can be performed by your family dentist in some cases, or you may be referred to an oral surgeon.
