Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth..…not so wise

Wisdom teeth are the large molars that emerge at the very back of your mouth, usually between the ages of 17 and 24. Some people never develop their wisdom teeth, while others have up to four emerge (one in each corner of your mouth). A lot of the time wisdom teeth appear with little trouble, but if there is not enough space for the teeth to grow they can become wedged in or ‘impacted.’

How Serious is an impacted Wisdom Tooth?

If left in the mouth, impacted wisdom teeth may damage neighbouring teeth, or become infected. Because the third molar area of the mouth is difficult to clean, it is a site that invites the bacteria that leads to gum disease. Furthermore oral bacteria may travel from your mouth through the bloodstream, where it may lead to possible systemic infections and illnesses that affect the heart, kidneys and other organs.

How are wisdom teeth removed?

In some cases wisdom teeth extractions are no different to extractions of any other teeth. The dentist will widen the tooth socket by using a straight instrument and a pair of dental forceps, the tooth will be moved from side-to-side until loose enough to be removed completely.
In deeply impacted cases, the surgeon may make an incision in the gums or may remove some bone as well. The incision is closed with stitches, which may be dissolvable after ten days. The whole procedure can take between 30 and 60 minutes.
