May 16, 2019

Wisdom teeth grow between the age of 16 and 25. Plaza Family Dental recommends removal of wisdom teeth. It can lead to serious complications and cause damage to nearby tooth, gums and facial bone.

Many people ask ‘why it is important to get wisdom teeth removed if they are not bothering’. As per the dentists, there are top 5 reasons that they should be removed.

Wisdom Teeth Cavities – Easy to Get Because They Are Hard to Clean

Wisdom teeth are located in the back of your jaw. It is difficult to brush and floss which leads to cavities and tooth decay.

Wisdom Teeth Pain – Inflamed and Uncomfortable Gums

Our gums usually don’t like wisdom teeth. Due to the limited space, wisdom teeth grow in odd ways and bacteria stay around the gums and tooth. The gums become inflamed, red and can even have an infection.

Damage to Other Teeth

It’s not only your gums that get bothered by wisdom teeth but the other teeth as well due to limited space. This can cause problems for your second molars and other teeth. It can damage the enamel, bone and adjacent teeth.

Tooth Cysts or Tumors

Wisdom teeth are not consistent from patient to patient, but they tend to not cooperate with the rest of the mouth. It is not removed to develop a cyst or tumor around them.

These can be painful and might not be problematic in a few cases but can lead to something significant.

Wisdom Teeth can cause problems later in life

Wisdom teeth may grow without any irritation at first but over time might develop problems. As time goes on wisdom teeth further develop their roots and the bones become harder. Due to which extraction gets difficult.
