Positioned at the extreme back of your mouth, third molars also known as wisdom teeth erupt when you are in your late teens or early 20’s. These are the last set of teeth to come in your mouth in your entire lifetime. As these teeth get very less space to erupt and grow, these may become misaligned or impacted, leading to pain and infections for many people.
Wisdom Teeth Symptoms: Time to remove
If your wisdom tooth is correctly positioned and not causing any discomfort, Third Molar Extraction is not necessary for you. But, if they are impacted or growing in an awkward angle, it is always good to remove your wisdom teeth. If you are experiencing any of the underlined symptoms, book an appointment with wisdom tooth removal services as soon as possible:
- With the growing misaligned wisdom tooth, surrounding nerves and bones get pressed, causing immense pain at the back of the mouth
- Oral bacterial infections and tooth decay which might occur
- Sharp pain in the gums and gum ailments
- Cysts and tumour growth around the tooth
Wisdom teeth symptoms also include redness, swelling, foul breath and difficulty in chewing. These symptoms indicate that your wisdom tooth is impacted and this is the time for Orthodontic Treatment to get it removed soon.
How Wisdom Tooth is removed?
The wisdom tooth extraction specialist performs a panoramic X ray of your mouth to see the exact position of your third molar and other teeth alignment. The dentists then may open your gum to widen the tooth socket or cut the tooth in smaller sections to make the extraction process easy. The entire process is done under local aesthetic. After the procedure, you may feel pain, swelling and difficulty in swelling for two or three days. Depending on alignment and positioning of your third molar, you may take as long as 7-10 days to recover completely.
