TREATMENT OF WISDOMTOOTH
Impacted wisdom teeth can result in pain damage to other teeth and other dental problems.In some cases, impacted wisdom teeth may cause no apparent or immediate problems.But more vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease then other teeth are.
Impacted wisdom teeth that causes pain or other dental complications are usually removed some.
When is Removal Needed ?
When wisdom teeth cause problems or X-rays show they might down the line,they need to come out.Good reason to take them out include:
- Damage to other teeth:- That extra set of molars can push your other teeth around , causing mouth pain and bite problems
- Jaw damage : Cysts can form around the new teeth. if they are not treated , they can hollow out your jaw and damage nerves.
- Sinus Issues : Problems with wisdom teeth can lead to sinus pain, pressure, and congestion
Inflamed Gums : Tissue around the area can swell and may be hard to clean.
Your dentist will look at the shape of your mouth and the position of your teeth to make a decision.Your age plays a role ,too.
Still not ready to part with molars? You can ask your dentist to explain what he sees with your teeth.In many cases,you can wait several months to see if things change before making your decision.But if you have pain or notice swelling or a bad odor near your back teeth,it may be time for a second look.
