Wisdom Teeth

Typically emerging between the ages of 17 and 20, wisdom teeth often pose various dental issues. While not all need removal, they can cause several complications, prompting extraction.

Associated Problems

During their emergence, wisdom teeth may cause pain, swelling, or infections, resulting in dental issues, including gum infections and decay due to poor cleaning.

Extraction Purposes

Impacted wisdom teeth can develop cysts or other jaw-related complications, leading to necessary extraction. The removal process is usually safe and uncomplicated.

Common Reasons for Extraction

  1. Impaction: Trapped teeth causing discomfort.
  2. Misalignment: Wisdom teeth pressing on adjacent teeth.
  3. Space Constraints: Insufficient room in the mouth for extra molars.
  4. Oral Health Concerns: Difficulty in maintaining hygiene, leading to oral problems.
  5. Orthodontic Planning: Removal recommended before orthodontic treatment to avoid crowding.
