Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Is Surgical Wisdom Teeth Extraction very difficult? Will it cause too much pain?

Wisdom teeth are the third and final tooth of the molars found at the very back of the mouth. Most people have them during their late teens or early twenties. They are a valuable asset when they grow healthy and properly positioned but they may require removal when they get misaligned or impacted.

When misaligned, wisdom teeth can grow inwards; sideways and sometimes they have a position horizontally. This eventually crowds and damages the adjacent teeth, the jaw and to some extent, the nerves. Those that grow leaning towards other molars may make these teeth vulnerable to decay by harbouring food particles and dental plaque. Impacted teeth are those that remain partially or completely entrapped within the soft tissues or within the jawbones. A wisdom tooth that only partially erupts through the gums leaves an opening for bacteria to enter and multiply and cause infections.

Let your dentist examine the positioning of your wisdom from the radiographs and from your mouth.
