Wisdom Teeth, What Lies Ahead

Wisdom teeth typically emerge in our late twenties or early thirties. If your wisdom teeth are robust and well-aligned, they would be useful assets to your mouth. The majority of them, however, are misaligned and must be extracted. Visit Arden Dental Care in Sacramento, California, to avail of the best wisdom tooth extraction services, as well as to maintain proper oral hygiene and develop a healthy dental lifestyle.

What Is the Function of Wisdom Teeth?

Most adults grow their third set of teeth between the ages of 17 and 21. Sharper teeth can shred food into little pieces, whereas flatter teeth crush it. Wisdom teeth are the flatter form of teeth known as molars. Adults have three sets of molars. These can be found on the top and bottom on both sides of their mouths. From infancy through early adolescence, humans grow their initial set of teeth, then lose them and grow a new set. After a brief delay, the last set of teeth appears in early adulthood

Reason for Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Issues With Other Teeth

Having an extra set of molars may cause your other teeth to shift, causing oral pain and biting problems.

Gum Inflammation

Tissue in the affected area may swell and become difficult to clean.

Cavities

Swollen gums can cause pockets to grow between teeth, allowing germs to thrive and cavities to form.

Alignment

Impacted wisdom teeth might crowd other teeth and necessitate therapy to restore other teeth.

Jaw damage

Cysts can form around developing wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage. If left untreated, they can hollow out your jaw and ruin your nerves.

How Are Wisdom Teeth Extracted?

Your dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb your teeth as well as the surrounding tissue before extraction. A wisdom tooth that has completely erupted through the gum can be pulled without difficulty.

Is your wisdom tooth, however, located beneath the gums and rooted within your jawbone? The dentist will then create an incision in your gums and remove a portion of the bone that is covering your tooth. Rather than pulling it out in one piece, such a tooth is usually extracted in tiny pieces. This lessens the amount of bone loss that must be removed to retrieve your tooth.
