What is a wisdom tooth?
Wisdom teeth are the third molars and the final adult teeth to emerge from the gums between the age of 17 and 21. The average person has four wisdom teeth in the rear of their mouth, two on top and two on the bottom.
Why do your wisdom teeth need extraction or removal?
Not all wisdom teeth need extraction. The problem with third molars is that they need extraction only if they do not erupt properly. If they are misaligned, they can injure the neighbouring teeth as well.
You need extraction if you see any changes in the area where your wisdom teeth are, such as:
What does your dentist mean by impacted wisdom teeth?
When your dentist says that your wisdom teeth are impacted, by this he or she means that your wisdom teeth are trapped between your jaw or under your gums. This means that they don’t get enough space to come out and come out either in the wrong position or incomplete.
What happens if your wisdom teeth are not removed?
Wisdom teeth that haven’t come out properly or are in the wrong position can cause many problems, like food lodging, cavities, and infection leading to pain, swelling and stiffness in your jaw. The impacted wisdom teeth can sometimes cause a cyst on or near the impacted tooth eventually causing damage to the roots of the nearby teeth.
Is wisdom tooth removal painful?
You should feel no pain and just minor discomfort (if any) during the treatment. The extraction site may be sensitive for a few days after the treatment, but with some rest and healing, you should be back to normal in 7 days.
How much does a wisdom tooth extraction cost?
The cost of tooth extraction is determined by the position of the tooth, the degree of its impaction, the need for anaesthesia, the need for sutures, and other factors. Always discuss these factors with your dentist, as they may have an impact on the procedure’s cost.
