Wisdom teeth appear later in an adults life. Under normal conditions these molars grow without problem. But in certain situations, they need to be extracted due to a variety of different reasons. Removing the wisdom teeth is a common and simple procedure that helps to relieve the pain and symptoms associated with misaligned teeth removal in my area.
The wisdom teeth start to emerge in the mouth when the person has reached 17 to 22 years of age. Rarely is it necessary to undertake extraction for anyone over the age of 30. They appear at the very back of the mouth at the top and bottom. While a small percentage of people require the extraction of wisdom teeth due to insufficient room or poor alignment, most people aren’t likely to notice any negative symptoms of the teeth appearing in later life.
Reasons to Extract
Wisdom teeth extraction is advised in several different situations. A common issue relates to a persons jaw not being large enough to accept the extra set of molars. If the mouth doesn’t have enough space, the newly emerging teeth impact the existing teeth causing them to be pushed together. When existing teeth are pushed crooked it helps to have the teeth removed for cosmetic reasons. In addition, the molars need extracting if they face the wrong direction or grow in crooked. Also, if the wisdom teeth grow in such a way that it makes it difficult to clean them, this can result in decay. So it further benefits to have the teeth extracted.
Obvious signs of needing extraction relate to the teeth that are growing in at an awkward angle. Symptoms can include jaw stiffness and pain close to the area the teeth are appearing Other issues include discomfort if teeth rub the inside of the mouth, crowding of the existing teeth, gum disease or tooth decay at the back of the mouth, and infected swelling in the gum tissue.
