3 Reasons for Removing Wisdom Teeth at Rolle Oral and Facial Surgery
Wisdom tooth or the third molars are often associated with a lot of pain. It generally happens when the teeth are impacted or are creating problems for other teeth as well as for your whole mouth. Generally, wisdom teeth come out when the patient is a teenager or in the early twenties. The eruption of these four teeth should be natural and pain-free. But if the jaw doesn’t have adequate room to accommodate them, it can cause pain and discomfort.
When the pain is already unbearable, the thought of tooth extraction might seem impossible. But at Rolle Oral and Facial Surgery, we ensure that your process becomes smooth, comfortable, and painless. Why do you need to extract your wisdom teeth? Take a look at the following reasons.
Pericoronitis or local gum infection is the most common reason why wisdom teeth need to be removed. Due to the lack of enough space in the jaw, the gum tissues become infected causing pain, and swelling which can disrupt your chewing and swallowing.
In the place of an impacted tooth, cyst or “fluid-filled balloons” can form and cause decay in the jawbone and, at times, in other teeth. This can create a lot of pain and discomfort for the patient. Hence, early detection and removal are necessary and we, with our leading surgeon Dr. Richard Rolle Jr. , perform this process efficiently.
Crowding and Damage to Adjacent Teeth
Owing to the lack of enough space for natural eruption, the wisdom teeth can become impacted and can create a crowded setting for your other teeth. If the patient has had braces, this becomes even prominent for the frontal lower teeth. Also, the adjacent teeth of the third molar become affected due to the pressure this one creates. As a result, it causes damage to other teeth.
