Often when a person has their wisdom teeth coming in the first thing they think is that they have to get them taken out. However, this may not always be the case. It’s important for those with Wisdom teeth coming in to have an examination by a reputable dentist, such as Dr. Mott and see if extraction is really necessary or if there are other means to save your third molars from being removed.

There are a lot of things that factor into why wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, should be removed or not. The pain of wisdom teeth coming in can appear out of nowhere, suddenly causing extreme discomfort overnight without any given warnings. Some of the reasons may include impacted teeth, which occurs when wisdom teeth do not emerge at the right angle in relation to the jaw bone, oral infections, cavities, and looser gums around wisdom teeth.

What should be done to wisdom teeth?

Most dentists would recommend wisdom teeth extractions to avoid the pain but some people prefer a more comfortable approach in dealing with the problem. As you know, there are slight risks when it comes to wisdom teeth removal, particularly from the harm that may happen throughout the surgery, such as infections and nerve damage.

There are cases where wisdom teeth are not required to be extracted, specifically for wisdom teeth which are functional, cavity-free, with healthy gum tissues, and disease-free. The best thing that anyone can do is to have their wisdom teeth monitored by a reliable dentist. It’s important to take the advice of an experienced dentist such as Dr. Mott.

Having healthy wisdom teeth is good but that does not mean that they won’t be a problem later down the line. If you keep your wisdom teeth, then you should take care of them effectively to avoid complications that could lead to having them removed later. Keep in mind that the teeth are prone to infections and other oral problems. If you do not take care of your wisdom teeth properly, you could end up having serious surgeries, which are costly and painful.
