When are Wisdom Tooth Extractions Needed?
Wisdom teeth are the four permanent adult teeth located in the back corners of the mouth on both the top and bottom jaws. They usually break through the gums between the ages of 17 and 25 but can be spotted on X-rays before then.
Some people’s wisdom teeth come in without issue, but other people require wisdom tooth extraction. Here are a few instances where the procedure may be necessary:
- The wisdom tooth does not have room to grow and has become impacted in the jaw.
- The tooth is causing pain, infection, or other dental problems.
- The mouth is not big enough for an extra set of molars.
- The wisdom tooth is growing into the jaw improperly and putting undue pressure on other teeth in the mouth.
While most people have their wisdom teeth removed as children or young teens, it’s becoming increasingly common for adults to undergo wisdom tooth extraction surgery as well.
What to Expect With Wisdom Tooth Removal
Depending on the location and condition of your wisdom teeth, they may be removed by a dentist or an oral surgeon. While dentists can usually manage simple extractions, you’ll likely be referred to an oral surgeon for more complex or surgical extractions. Regardless of who extracts your wisdom teeth, here’s what you can expect from the process:
