Should I Remove My Wisdom Teeth?

The wisdom teeth are the third set of molars in your jaw that are the last teeth that develop. They usually grow between 17 to 25 years. They are useless teeth, and you do not need them for chewing, unlike your other teeth. Do you know the history behind the wisdom teeth? Our ancestors ate raw meats, roots, leaves, and nuts. So they needed more teeth to chew better, and their jaws were bigger than us. As we evolved and our diet has changed, we no longer need the wisdom teeth.
When your wisdom tooth starts to erupt, you may experience pain and discomfort, especially when they are impacted. In the case of impacted wisdom tooth, the tooth is unable to break through the gum fully because there are 24 teeth in the jawbone, and there is not enough room for a new tooth. So it puts pressure on the other teeth and your nerves. At this time, you should head to our experienced emergency dentist in Park Dental clinic to have your wisdom tooth removed. Besides, it isn’t very easy to brush, floss, and clean it because it is in the back of your mouth. Therefore, it can cause wisdom tooth infection, gum disease, tooth decay, and so on, that affect your lungs, heart, and other organs if it is left untreated. In some cases, if you do not remove your wisdom teeth, it will cause serious problems such as cyst and tumors that damage your jaw, teeth, and nerves. It is recommended to visit our emergency dentist to check out your situation.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Depending on your oral condition, our emergency dentist decides to extract it or remove it through the surgical process. If you have any wisdom tooth infections, the emergency dentist may prescribe antibiotics to heal the infection before removing it. Before wisdom tooth extraction, we use local anesthesia to numb the desired area that the tooth will be removed.

Sometimes, wisdom teeth removal needs a more complicated process by performing surgery. The emergency dentist opens up the gum on the wisdom tooth to access the wisdom tooth or any bone that covers the tooth. If there is a bone on the tooth, he will remove it. Sometimes it is necessary to cut the tooth into smaller pieces to make it easier to remove. Also, wisdom teeth surgery can be done in the case that you want to remove all of your wisdom teeth at one time. In this case, we use general anesthesia for you to prevent pain in your whole body and make you sleep during the surgery process. At last, our professionals perform stitches to close the gum tissue. Some stitches are dissolved over time, and some should be removed after a few days.
