What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Mission Hills Dental

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that tend to erupt in a person’s late teens and early twenties. They are located all the way at the rear of the mouth. Whether a person has wisdom teeth or not is due to genetics; some people have all four, some have two, and some have none.

Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Removed?

Dental Solutions

These teeth can be a fine asset if they are properly aligned. Unfortunately, due to evolutionary pressures, the human skull has decreased in size over time, and most of us no longer have room in our mouths for wisdom teeth. When they do erupt, they can push other teeth aside and lead to painful overcrowding. Wisdom teeth can also be misaligned, and in some cases, can even push diagonally or horizontally into the adjacent molar.

Removing these teeth to prevent other dental problems is not always necessary, but it is often recommended. Removal is best done in younger patients when the tooth roots are less fully developed and the bone is less dense. The early-to-mid teens is an ideal age for wisdom tooth removal. Adults can get their wisdom teeth removed as well, but the healing process will be longer.

The Wisdom Tooth Removal Procedure

Dental Procedure

Wisdom tooth removal is done under general or local anesthesia. The difficulty of the procedure depends on the tooth’s position and whether or not it has erupted. Teeth that have erupted are relatively easy to remove. In more complicated scenarios, the tooth may be impacted, fused to the jawbone, or at a hard-to-reach angle.

You should plan to take the day off from work or school for a wisdom tooth removal, to give yourself time to recover from the anesthesia and start to heal. Follow your dentist’s instructions to deal with any bleeding or swelling that may occur.

Reach out to Mission Hills Dental for a wisdom tooth evaluation to determine if you have these teeth and whether they need to be removed. Schedule your appointment today and we’ll get the process started.
