When Do Wisdom Teeth Need to be Extracted?

It is true that not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but about 85 percent of the population does. If your third molars, or wisdom teeth, are coming in perfectly straight, and your mouth has enough room for the addition of more teeth, then odds are you will not experience a problem; however, for the majority of people, their wisdom teeth come in at angle or fail to successfully erupt from the gums, or their mouth is too small to include the extra teeth. If any of the latter apply to you, you may need to discuss with our doctors the possibility of wisdom teeth extraction. The following are symptoms commonly associated with a wisdom tooth that fails to develop correctly:

  • Soreness or Pain Behind the Molars
  • Tender or Swollen Mouth
  • Sensitivity to Hot or Cold Temperatures
  • Jaw Ache
  • Unpleasant Taste or Bad Breath

Reasons for Tooth Extraction

There are a number of reasons wisdom teeth require extraction, most importantly to restore health to the smile and protect it from further damage. If a tooth is not removed in a timely manner additional tooth loss may occur. The following are common situations where your doctor may recommend extraction:

  • Impacted Tooth
  • Tooth That is Only Partially Broken Through the Gums
  • Tooth is Coming in at a Poor Angle
  • Severe Decay or Infection that is Beyond Repair
