What is A Wisdom Tooth?

A wisdom tooth is one of the four molars at the back of the mouth, typically emerging in late adolescence or early adulthood. They are the last set of molars to develop and are often referred to as “third molars.” Due to the limited space in the jaw, wisdom teeth can sometimes become impacted or not fully emerge, leading to potential dental issues such as:

  • Pain and Discomfort: Often experienced due to the tooth pressing against other teeth or tissues.
  • Pericoronitis: An infection that occurs when a partially erupted wisdom tooth is covered by a flap of gum tissue, trapping food and bacteria.
  • Tooth Decay: Resulting from difficulty cleaning around impacted or partially erupted teeth.
  • Tooth Crowding: Caused when an impacted wisdom tooth pushes against neighbouring teeth, leading to misalignment.

Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are removed to prevent or address problems often caused by these teeth not having enough room to emerge or develop normally. These issues can include pain, infection, cysts, damage to nearby teeth, and gum disease. Additionally, impacted wisdom teeth — those that are trapped in the jawbone or gums — can lead to more serious complications, making their removal a preventive measure to avoid future dental problems.

At Hills Dental & Implant Centre, we recognise the anxiety often associated with wisdom teeth removal. Under Dr. Ahmed Wahba‘s expert guidance, our team is committed to ensuring a secure, comfortable experience for this procedure.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction: Procedure Differences and Steps

Location-based Complexity:

The ease of wisdom tooth extraction often depends on its position in the mouth. Specifically, upper wisdom teeth tend to be simpler to remove with the help of local anesthesia. In contrast, extracting lower wisdom teeth can present more challenges.

Steps Involved in Extraction:

The removal process of a wisdom tooth can be multifaceted. It may require an incision in the gum to reveal the tooth, elimination of any bone obstructing the tooth, and in some instances, the tooth might need to be sectioned using a drill for easier extraction.

How Long Does Wisdom Tooth Removal Take?

The duration of a wisdom tooth extraction varies based on its complexity. Simple extractions typically last between 20 and 30 minutes, whereas surgical removal of impacted teeth can extend from 45 minutes to over an hour. These are general estimates, and individual experiences can vary. For a more accurate timeframe, it’s best to consult with an oral surgeon or dentist.

Side Effects of Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom tooth extraction, while common, can come with a range of complications. Patients often report common side effects like pain, bleeding, swelling, and bruising. There are also risks of infections, allergic reactions to medical equipment or medication, and the painful dry socket condition.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Recovery Timeline

After the extraction, patients often experience discomfort and may need up to a week off work or school to rest and manage pain. By the end of the first week, most individuals can resume regular activities, though it’s crucial to follow any post-operative care instructions to ensure smooth healing and prevent complications.

Frequently Asked Questions

You might need your wisdom teeth removed if you experience symptoms like persistent pain, gum inflammation, tooth crowding, difficulty brushing around the wisdom teeth, or cysts and infections in the mouth.

Yes, you can avoid surgery if your wisdom teeth are not causing problems, are fully erupted, and are positioned correctly in the mouth without crowding other teeth. Regular dental check-ups are still important to monitor any changes.

Keeping your wisdom teeth can pose risks such as potential crowding, tooth decay, gum disease, cysts, or infections, especially if they are partially erupted or impacted. These conditions can sometimes develop silently, without obvious symptoms.

During wisdom teeth extraction, you can be fully asleep if you undergo general anesthesia, which is often used for complex cases or if you prefer not to be awake. For simpler extractions, local anesthesia might be used instead, which numbs the area but keeps you awake.
