    The wisdom teeth begin to erupt around when an individual reaches the end of their teenage years. However, there are often people for whom this is delayed quite a bit.

    Wisdom teeth are also called third molars since they are the last to emerge. More often than not, the gums may not have enough space to accommodate a new tooth, leading to the tooth emerging crooked or impacted. These can cause:

    • Infection,
    • Pain,
    • Discomfort,
    • Swelling of the Gums, and more,

    All of which can lead to more severe problems if left untreated.

    When is Wisdom Teeth Extraction Recommended?

    Wisdom tooth removal becomes essential if:

    • The wisdom tooth has only partially erupted
    • There is pain or inflammation in the tooth
    • There are gaps created where food can possibly get stuck and cause further issues
    • The adjacent tooth starts getting affected
    • There is swelling or infection causing discomfort
    • There is crowding that causes issues with the alignment of the other teeth
    • There is decay due to impacted teeth

    Getting a consultation is the most ideal way for a dentist to determine whether you are in need of a tooth extraction.

    How Do Wisdom Teeth Extractions Help?

    If the wisdom teeth are impacted or only partially erupted, the chances of inflammation are high. Further, impacted and partially erupted teeth are also difficult to clean properly, which can cause the teeth to decay over time. The teeth can also become infected due to improper cleaning, leading to a bad odour. The pain and swelling often caused due to impacted teeth are yet another addition to the list of things that can cause discomfort to an individual.

    What Does a Wisdom Tooth Extraction Procedure Involve?

    The very first approach to dealing with impacted wisdom teeth is a check-up and an x-ray to identify the position of the tooth. The x-ray helps the dentist determine whether there is crowding or if there is room enough for the impacted tooth. It will also help the dentist figure out whether extracting the tooth will be an easy affair or require a lot more effort.

    Once the x-ray is analysed, the dentist will decide whether to have an oral surgeon or specialist extract the tooth, depending on the difficulty.

    By creating an incision in the gum, the teeth can either be pulled out completely after careful manoeuvring or be extracted in pieces by dividing them.
