What are wisdom teeth?

What are wisdom teeth?

As the wisdom teeth are the last permanent teeth to appear, there is usually not enough space in your mouth to accommodate them. This can cause the wisdom teeth to be included - teeth stuck under the gum tissue by other teeth or bone, or may cause swelling or pain.

Wisdom teeth that erupt only partially or are born poorly positioned can also cause crowding and other problems. Because the teeth before 20 years of age have roots in a lower stage of development, they cause fewer complications when they are removed. Therefore, it is recommended that people between the ages of 16 and 19 have their wisdom teeth examined to see if they need to be extracted.

The extraction is done routinely. Your dentist may recommend general or local anesthesia. After extraction of the tooth (or teeth), you will need to gently chew a piece of gauze for 30 to 45 minutes after leaving the office to stop any bleeding that may occur.

You may experience some pain or swelling, but which will pass naturally after a few days; however, you should call your dentist if there is prolonged or severe pain, swelling, bleeding, or fever.

Extraction of wisdom teeth due to crowding or being in the maxillary bone does not affect your bite or your oral health in the future.
