A wisdom tooth, also known as a third molar, is the last tooth to develop in the back of the mouth, usually appearing between the ages of 17 and 25. Wisdom teeth can cause problems if they do not have enough room to grow in properly, which may lead to impaction, infection, or damage to adjacent teeth.
In these cases, it may be recommended to have the wisdom teeth extracted by an oral surgeon. However, if the wisdom teeth are able to grow in properly and are causing no issues, it may not be necessary to have them removed. The best course of action will vary depending on the individual case and should be discussed with a dentist or oral surgeon.
Common Problems with Wisdom Tooth
Wisdom tooth can cause a number of problems if it doest not have enough room to grow in properly. Some of the most common problems associated with wisdom teeth include:
Impaction: This occurs when the wisdom tooth is unable to fully emerge from the gums, as it is blocked by other teeth or bone. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, swelling, and infection.
Crowding: When wisdom teeth grow in, they can push other teeth out of alignment, causing crowding and misalignment of the teeth.
Decay and gum disease: Wisdom teeth are harder to clean due to their position in the back of the mouth and can be more susceptible to decay and gum disease if not properly maintained.
Cyst formation: Wisdom teeth can cause a cyst, which is a fluid-filled sac that can damage the jawbone and surrounding teeth.
Tumor formation: Wisdom teeth can cause a benign tumor called an ameloblastoma, which can damage the jawbone and surrounding teeth.
These problems can be treated by extraction of the wisdom teeth. It is best to consult a dentist to determine the best course of action.
Procedure of Wisdom Tooth Extraction
The procedure to remove wisdom teeth, also known as third molar extraction, is typically performed by an oral surgeon in an outpatient setting. The specific steps of the procedure will vary depending on the location and position of the wisdom teeth, as well as the overall health of the patient. However, the general steps of the procedure are as follows:
Anesthesia: The patient will be given a local anesthesia to numb the area around the wisdom teeth, or a general anesthesia to put the patient to sleep during the procedure.
Incision: The surgeon will make small incisions in the gums to access the wisdom teeth.
Removal: The wisdom teeth will be gently rocked back and forth to loosen them from the surrounding bone and tissue. In some cases, the tooth may need to be sectioned into smaller pieces to make it easier to remove.
Stitching: Once the wisdom teeth have been removed, the incisions will be closed with stitches.
Recovery: After the procedure, the patient will be monitored for a short period of time to ensure proper recovery. Pain, swelling, and bleeding are normal after the extraction, but the patient should contact the surgeon if they experience severe pain, heavy bleeding, or fever.
It's worth noting that the recovery time can vary depending on the individual case, but generally it takes around 7-10 days.
