Why Are Wisdom Teeth Extracted?

The premier reason wisdom teeth are extracted is to avoid crowding teeth and shifting, misaligned bites. Although wisdom teeth are removed for a variety of reasons, the number one is crowding. Wisdom teeth begin to crowd other teeth when jawbones are not large enough or when wisdom teeth break through at uneven angles that then damage the rest of the teeth. The team at Tamiami Dental Center are experienced at analyzing whether or not wisdom teeth need removed and then are able to remove the teeth as well.

When teeth break through only partially, gum flaps often develop and remain attached. When such flaps develop, bacteria, food, and germs become easily trapped and can lead to damaging and dangerous infection. Wisdom tooth extraction at Tamiami Dental Center helps avoid issues related to untreated wisdom teeth.

Again, only dental professionals can diagnose whether or not wisdom teeth need to be removed. To get an idea of why people choose removal, check out the general list below:

  • Removal of impacted teeth
  • Extraction of teeth that are stuck to the jaw
  • Correcting crowding teeth or preventing it (in cases of already crowded teeth)
  • Gums that are infected or inflamed
  • Removing gum flaps
  • Avoiding overly enflamed or infected wisdom teeth 

Wisdom tooth extraction is not necessary for every case, neither is it always recommended. People who are of higher risk for infection must be carefully monitored before and after treatment and is sometimes a factor in deciding whether or not to remove the teeth. Tamiami Dental Center’s team of dental professionals help decide whether or not wisdom tooth removal is necessary.

After Wisdom Tooth Removal

The recovery process after wisdom tooth removal is just as important as the removal itself. We consult with each patient before and after surgery on how to properly care for their newly removed teeth. Bleeding can continue for up to 24 hours after operation, and pain and swelling is likely. Jaws can also be hard to open as usual, but quickly heal. Inflammation of a dry socket is also quite common, but our team of dental professionals has a solution for every possible issue.
