Do I Really Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Published on July 18th, 2019

Many people who have wisdom teeth question if they must be removed in order to have a healthy and straight smile. There are several factors that could lead your dental professional to recommend wisdom teeth removal in Bloomingdale. If you are wondering if you need your wisdom teeth extracted, it is important to ask your dentist. Here are some reasons why you might or might not need to get yours removed.

Are They Grown In and Healthy?

If your wisdom teeth have fully erupted through the gums in the back of your mouth they may not need to be removed if your mouth has enough space to equip them. When your wisdom teeth grow in healthy, are able to be cleaned, and are positioned correctly, your dentist may not recommend a wisdom tooth extraction. Healthy wisdom teeth normally remain in the mouth as long as they do not affect the positioning of other teeth.

Is Their Positioning Correct?

Many people have to undergo wisdom teeth removal in Bloomingdale because their wisdom teeth are growing in crooked, resulting in the shift of your other teeth. Your dentist may require removal if the eruption of the wisdom teeth will cause other teeth to shift. Normally, your dental professional will be able to determine this before the teeth have fully erupted by taking an oral x-ray.

Are They Causing Pain?

Let your dentist know if you are experiencing pain from your wisdom teeth. Pain can be caused by several things including, infection or mispositioning. Feeling consistent pain from your wisdom teeth is not normal, so it is best to schedule an appointment with your dentist.
