With maturity comes wisdom. Particularly wisdom teeth! Did you know that wisdom teeth are the final set of molars to appear in your mouth? Wisdom Teeth generally come up in our late teens or early twenties. In certain cases these teeth serve as a worthy asset to your mouth if strong and properly aligned. But in most of the cases, they are not aligned well and generally need removal.
Why do they cause Problems?
When wisdom teeth are not accurately aligned, they may place themselves —
- Be slanted toward or away from the second molars,
- Be tilted inward or outward.
Misalignment can crowd or may destroy your neighboring teeth, the nerves, or jawbone. If the wisdom teeth only partially develop, they might damage your overall oral system. Wisdom teeth also can be impacted! They get restricted among the soft tissue and the jawbone. And due to this reason there just isn’t any space for them to break through the surface. Hence, they only partially break through or erupt through the gum. This indeed, might lead to tumors or cysts. In fact, this may further cause other healthy teeth and the jawbone to damage if not treated timely. One more issue is that they are so far back, that they are hard to clean! This in turn can result in infection and tooth decay.
Symptoms of Wisdom Teeth coming in:
- Bleeding or soft gums
- Swelling of the gums and jaw
- Pain and stiffness in the jaws
- Bad taste from mouth or unpleasant breath
- Difficulty in opening your mouth
- Triggered headaches
Treating your Wisdom Teeth in Midtown, TX!
Ask your Dentist at Floss Dental about the positioning of your wisdom teeth. Firstly, your doctor will examine your mouth and will take an X-ray. If your dentist recommends for Wisdom Tooth Extraction, it’s because to stop a more painful or complicated extraction later. Removal is quite uncomplicated in young people. Because the teeth roots have not entirely developed and the bone is less dense! For aged people, healing time generally takes longer.
How Are Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Before your wisdom teeth are extracted, the teeth and the surrounding tissue will be anesthetized.
- A wisdom tooth that has completely erupted from the gum can be extracted easily.
- A wisdom tooth that is below the gums and rooted in the jawbone may require incision into the gums. And then the section of bone that lies over the tooth is removed. In this condition the tooth is extracted in tiny sections, instead of removing in one piece. This lessens the amount of bone that needs to be removed to pull the tooth out.
