Wisdom Tooth Problem

The last teeth to arrive. For most people it doesn’t pose any problems. For others it comes our partially as it cant find enough room in the mouth due to crowding. This can lead to gum diseases and pain around the back of the mouth. Also because where it is positioned, it is hard for the bristles of the brush to reach and clean the tooth well. General wisdom is that impacted wisdom teeth is removed as it causes more issues than being helpful. In the teenage years of an individual it is recommended that Wisdom tooth position is checked.

More often than not, impacted wisdom tooth is surgically removed. It is a bit more complicated extraction of tooth as it is harder for surgical instruments to reach the back of the mouth. Dentists have to work with very limited space and need to make sure that nearby nerves are not disturbed. Removal of impacted tooth can take anywhere between 30 minutes to 1 hour. usually post extraction anti-biotics are prescribed. Once it is removed, gum disease and associated pain etc will go away.
