Wisdom teeth removal is a common dental procedure that is often recommended for teenagers and young adults. It involves the extraction of the third molars, which are the last teeth to emerge in the mouth. The process of removing wisdom teeth can vary depending on the development of the root and the position of the molars. In some cases, it may involve making an incision in the gums and removing any bone that blocks access to the root of the tooth.
In other cases, it may involve dividing the tooth into sections for easier extraction. Before undergoing wisdom teeth removal, patients will be given a local anesthetic injection to numb the tooth and surrounding area. This helps to ensure that they won't experience any discomfort during the procedure. It's important to note that wisdom teeth can cause a variety of problems if left untreated, such as misalignment, infection, and overcrowding.
Therefore, it's recommended that they be removed on time, usually in the middle or late teens. If wisdom teeth grow properly, with enough space in the mouth, they may not need to be removed. However, if they are impacted or misaligned, extraction is necessary to prevent potential problems in the future. Partial eruption of wisdom teeth can also create an opening for bacteria to enter around the tooth and cause infection.
