What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, aptly named for their arrival at adulthood, are not always a welcomed event. Maturing and emerging in the late teens or early twenties, there is often very little room for these third and final set of molars. Unfortunately, these teeth tend to continue to push through, even when they encounter other teeth or bone. This can lead to teeth being pushed out of alignment and impacted wisdom teeth that need to be removed.

What are the different types of impacted teeth?
Some people receive their wisdom teeth without notice. Their jaws have adequate room for these last molars and the teeth come in straight and inline. However, this is not the case for many others. Impacted wisdom teeth can arrive in a variety of ways. The majority of impacted wisdom teeth are angled toward the front of the mouth, referred to as mesioangular impaction. Other classifications are vertical impaction, where the tooth does not reach the gum line; horizontal impaction, where the tooth comes in sideways at a 90-degree angle; and distoangular impaction, where the tooth is angled toward the back of the mouth.

Do impacted wisdom teeth need to be removed?
When wisdom teeth are impacted, it is almost always in the best interest of the patient to have them removed. They can cause cysts, infection, gum inflammation, sinus problems and other painful issues. If they push against existing teeth, they can cause alignment issues or damage to other dental work, causing more need for dental treatments. The best option is to monitor their growth with regular visits to the dentist. At the first sign of problems, your dentist will discuss the option of wisdom teeth removal to protect your health.

Can extraction prevent further issues from wisdom teeth?
If your wisdom teeth are causing pain or have become impacted, having them removed is usually the best option. This can prevent further issues that can affect your smile and oral health. Proactively removing your wisdom teeth can save you money off further dental work and expensive orthodontic repairs.
