Wisdom Teeth Removal Q & A

ReHoBoth Health Network & Family Dentistry

What are the wisdom teeth?

These are the third and final set of molars that typically come in between the ages of 17 and 25.

By the time the wisdom teeth erupt, the rest of the natural teeth are set in place. For many, that means there's no room for four more molars.

Not everyone requires wisdom teeth removal, though. That's why the dentists at ReHoBoth Health Network and Family Dentistry work with each patient to determine if removal is necessary.

What is an impacted wisdom tooth?

“Impacted” refers to a molar that fails to come in normally. This may occur because there is no room left for the tooth to grow in, leaving it trapped somewhere under the gum. It’s a painful experience because that trapped tooth can damage the tissue around it or become infected.

What reasons might a person need wisdom teeth removal?

Allowing the teeth to come up through the gums can have consequences. For example, the molars might push the rest of the teeth together. Or, if they can’t push up through the soft tissue, they might turn and become trapped in the bone or gum or grow in at the wrong angle.

For some, the decision to extract the wisdom teeth comes after the teeth emerge. The patient may have a hard time brushing these teeth so far back in the mouth, so they become diseased. At that point, wisdom tooth extraction is absolutely necessary.

How is wisdom teeth removal done?

The process starts with imaging. The ReHoBoth Health Network and Family Dentistry offers patients both regular x-rays and 3D scans. That allows your dentist to get a good look at all the molars to see their position, size, and just how far they’ve erupted.

This information allows your ReHoBoth dentist to create a removal strategy for each of the molars. Typically, these surgeries take about 45 minutes or less. Your dentist cuts through the gum to access the tooth and extract it. A few stitches in the gum closes up the hole, and they dissolve on their own within a few days.

If your wisdom teeth are erupting, it's time to find out if extraction is necessary. Call or click today to schedule your consultation with ReHoBoth Health Network and Family Dentistry today!
