FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

In fact, professional and competent dentists often do their best to save the teeth. However, in some cases, the stage of dental treatment may have already passed and the teeth became dysfunctional. In such cases, tooth extraction is performed due to preventing pain in the teeth, avoiding decayed tooth to spread and impact the other teeth, and initiation of implant treatment.

 

These are the teeth that develop at the ages of 17 and 26 on average and come out like the ordinary teeth in some people, while some people have impacted wisdom teeth as the wisdom teeth are coated with bones or gums or the tooth is in a different position in the jaw.

Yes, the wisdom tooth is a tooth that needs to be removed. Because most wisdom teeth can damage the jaw bone or the teeth around it, depending on the location. In addition to this, it is generally not easy to reach out to the wisdom teeth with a toothbrush as in normal teeth. Most people may not even be aware that they cannot clean their wisdom tooth. This causes bacteria and food residues around the tooth, decaying both the wisdom tooth and the teeth around it. All of these problems are caused by the lack of space for wisdom tooth in a normal mouth. However, in exceptional cases such as where the wisdom tooth does not threaten the oral and dental health, the wisdom tooth may not need to be removed. One should have a dentist examination to get a clear understanding regarding the matter.

If the wisdom tooth is not removed, it may apply pressure on the other teeth and cause movement and eventually misalignment of teeth. This misshaping will also affect the jaw structure negatively. Also, wisdom tooth may cause infection if it is not removed. Finally, if the wisdom tooth is not removed, it may cause severe pain. The cause of this pain may be a decay in the wisdom tooth, or it may be the pressure pain caused by the wisdom tooth.

Another thing which people are very curious is whether the wisdom tooth is available in every oral structure. Not everyone has to have a wisdom tooth. Some people may not have wisdom tooth genetically.

Wisdom tooth never occurs in some people, while the others have four wisdom teeth.
