Making a Wise Choice for Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extraction

In the back corners of your mouth, are four permanent adult teeth, most commonly known as wisdom teeth. The term, “wisdom teeth” is derived by the stage in life age at which the teeth appear—emerging much later in life compared to other teeth—at an age when people are presumably “wiser” than as children. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25. These teeth are a common source of discomfort for many individuals and a central source of debate among dental care experts.

Determining the necessity of wisdom tooth extraction is a decision that requires a great deal of research, professional advice, and understanding to arrive at the best decision for your health.

For some people, the wisdom teeth erupt straight and fit comfortably in the mouth, while for others, this set of teeth never emerges, making tooth extraction unnecessary. The discomfort and debate over wisdom teeth is spurred by the fact that for so many individuals, the wisdom teeth don’t have room to grow, or emerge crooked, leading to multiple dental health issues.

Some dentists and oral surgeons recommend wisdom tooth extraction as a preventive measure against potential future problems. The procedure may be a simple outpatient procedure performed at your dentist’s office or, in the event of potential high-risk complications, you may have the surgery in the hospital with an oral surgeon. Consulting with your dental care provider and even seeking a second opinion as necessary, is a key strategy of preparing for wisdom tooth extraction. Seeking the advice of a trusted and affordable dentist in College Park can make all the difference in your long-term dental care.

The American Dental Association recommends wisdom tooth extraction for the following reasons:

  • Pain or discomfort
  • Infection
  • Tumor or cyst development
  • Damage to nearby teeth
  • Development of gum disease
  • Tooth decay

If your wisdom teeth are not causing you present discomfort, you should know why preventive measures by a dentist in College Park might be necessary. The most common reasons for preventive treatment include:

  • Safety: many dental care experts believe it is difficult to predict future problems with impacted wisdom teeth and it is safer to simply remove them before they can cause issue
  • Potential for disease: wisdom teeth commonly harbor disease even in the absence of symptoms
  • Removing the teeth as a young person reduces future risks, as older adults may experience additional health complication before, during, or after the surgery

You may find a dentist in College Park who does not advise removal of wisdom teeth that are not problematic. Some dental care professionals believe that the evidence is insufficient of asymptomatic wisdom teeth causing disease or complications later in life and thus does not justify the risks and expense of the procedure. To make the right decision for you, you should seek the advice of a caring, affordable dentist to fully understand the risks and benefits of the wisdom tooth extraction procedure.
