WONDERING WHEN IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR WISDOM TEETH OUT? OR, WHY YOU SHOULD EVEN HAVE THEM REMOVED IN THE FIRST PLACE? LET’S GO OVER A FEW REASONS AND SIGNS THAT IT’S TIME TO GET THOSE THIRD MOLARS OUT.
One reason to have your wisdom teeth removed – to prevent issues from even arising. Getting wisdom teeth, or third molars, out before the become a “problem” can save you from a slew of issues down the road.
2. Damage to Other Teeth
Did you know that your wisdom teeth can cause damage to surrounding teeth? That extra set of molars can push your other teeth around – causing mouth pain and bite problems.
Impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems with crowding of other teeth and even make treatment to straighten other teeth necessary. You do not want your wisdom teeth to crowd your mouth and throw off the alignment of your smile.
4. Sinus Issues
Complications from wisdom teeth can lead to sinus issues like pain, pressure and congestion.
5. Inflamed Gums and Cavities
Tissues around your wisdom teeth can swell and may be hard to clean. Swollen gums can create pockets between teeth that help bacteria grow and cavities form.
If you feel like you have been experiencing any of these issues, or want to prevent them before they start, schedule a consultation with Dr. Sharma to evaluate your wisdom teeth.
