The term “wisdom teeth” refers to the third molars, which typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 21, hence the name. At that point in our lives, we are meant to be maturing and, as part of that process, gaining both insight and knowledge. In the days when our ancestors were required to pulverize their diets of nuts, twigs, and raw meat, those four choppers came in quite handy. However, those days are long behind us. If your mouth does not have enough space for your wisdom teeth or if they emerge in an improper place, they can be a source of discomfort. It is possible that a dentist will need to remove them.
In the field of dentistry, the office of Dr. Motiwala is considered to be an authority figure. He is more than happy to spend as much time as is required in order to provide you with information regarding the condition of your teeth, to offer clear and concise explanations of the various treatment choices available to you, and to answer any questions you may have.
When your third molars become wedged beneath your gums or in your jaw, this condition is known as impaction, and it can lead to a wide range of dental issues. If a tooth is impacted, a cyst may grow on it or in the area around it. This cyst may cause harm to the roots of surrounding teeth or to the bone that supports the teeth.
When wisdom teeth emerge in the wrong places, it is more difficult to floss effectively between them and the molars that are in front of them. It’s possible for food to become lodged, which can encourage the growth of bacteria and ultimately result in tooth decay. To make matters even worse, partial eruptions allow germs to enter the gums, which then opens the door for infections to develop. If there is not enough space for wisdom teeth to erupt, they can cause the surrounding teeth to become misaligned and even be damaged.
Even though every patient is different, there are certain circumstances in which the extraction of wisdom teeth is the only option. Pain, infection, tumors, damage to neighboring teeth, cysts, gum disease, tooth decay, and preparation for orthodontic treatment are some of the disorders that fall under this category. (Hereditary factors cause some people to be born with no wisdom teeth at all or with only two wisdom teeth.)
A dentist will take X-rays of the affected area and monitor how the wisdom teeth are developing before deciding what course of action, if any, is necessary. You and she (or he) are going to discuss the most effective method of treatment.
The dentist will continue to check the wisdom teeth that are left in place because there is a possibility that problems will arise in the future.
