Who are Good Candidates to Keep their Wisdom Teeth?

Posted on 8/24/2020 by Beautiful Smiles Office
The problem of when to remove a wisdom tooth is one of the most controversial issues in the world of dentistry. Some dentists are quick to recommend a wisdom tooth extraction based on common knowledge, while some make recommendations based on a careful, comprehensive examination of the wisdom tooth.

Wisdom teeth that emerge in an upright and stable position often remain healthy and strong for life. As long as wisdom teeth do not cause pain or aren't affected by decay or gum diseases, they're innocuous. However, the health of wisdom teeth mostly depends on the individual's oral habits, including how frequently they brush and floss and show up for dental checkups.

When Should You Keep your Wisdom Tooth?

Wisdom teeth are an extra row of molars that have served us in our journey through evolution. Wisdom teeth provided an extra grinding surface during times when we were neither eating refined, cooked food nor maintaining good oral health.

However, with all the problems that made wisdom tooth highly useful far behind us, the emergence of wisdom teeth actually turns out to be problematic in most cases today. But some people with wisdom teeth are also lucky to have attributes like a more commodious mouth and an opportune dentition, which create an ideal breeding ground for healthy wisdom teeth. In such cases, the wisdom teeth have enough room to emerge and become established without interfering with other components of dentition.

You can keep your wisdom teeth if they stand uprightly on their own without shoving up on surrounding molars or distorting the gums in a way that might lead to pain and tooth infection.

But the absence of any immediate danger doesn't necessarily imply that your wisdom teeth will remain in good condition for the rest of your life. It's important to have your wisdom teeth frequently examined to guard against any underlining issues that might cause problems in the future. Visit our office today and let's examine your wisdom teeth with state-of-the-art tools and techniques to determine whether or not you should keep your wisdom teeth.
