Do Your Wisdom Teeth Really Have to Come Out?
How to recognize when there's a problem
Once you’ve moved into your late teen years, you may think the teeth you see are the only teeth you’ll ever get. But there’s a strong possibility that isn’t true.
Your wisdom teeth can still break through, or erupt, even in early adulthood.
Knowing more about your wisdom teeth and how they behave can make it easier to deal with problems that arise and the need for extraction. Here, we answer common questions that our patients ask about wisdom teeth:
Q: Does everyone have wisdom teeth?
A: No, not everyone is born with a full complement of teeth. In fact, the wisdom teeth are the most common congenitally missing teeth.
Q: How do you know when there’s a problem with your wisdom teeth?
A: Pain in the upper or lower jaw can often be the first sign that your wisdom teeth are causing problems. You may feel a sensation of pressure in the back of your mouth. Also, the gum tissue around the erupting wisdom tooth often becomes sensitive, swollen and inflamed.
However, you may also feel no pain at all. But the absence of pain doesn’t necessarily mean there isn’t a problem. “A lot of folks don’t have any symptoms,”. “That’s why you should have your wisdom teeth examined by a dentist to determine if extraction is appropriate.”
Q: Is removal always necessary?
A: If your wisdom teeth are impacted, thereby preventing adequate oral hygiene, it’s often best to have them removed.
Teeth that erupt in an upright and functional position often don’t need to be removed, as long as they cause no pain and aren’t associated with decay or gum disease.
However, even wisdom teeth that come incorrectly can develop problems over time because they are so far back in the mouth and difficult to clean. So if you keep your wisdom teeth, be sure to brush and floss them well, and see your dentist regularly.
Q: What happens when a wisdom tooth is impacted?
A: It’s common for people to have impacted wisdom teeth. These teeth are buried, either partially or completely, in the soft tissue or jaw bone, and are more susceptible to disease and other problems.
The problem is you can’t clean impacted wisdom teeth properly, so they can start to decay, and you can develop gum disease. Although less common, cysts or tumors can also develop around impacted teeth.
Dentists generally evaluate impacted teeth on a case-by-case basis to determine whether to remove them, he adds. If a tooth is fully impacted in bone and X-rays show that eruption is unlikely, your dentist will often recommend removal to prevent future problems.
Q: What problems can occur after removal?
A: Mild to moderate pain is normal and expected after an extraction, but a few other complications are also possible. Here’s a rundown of what you can expect and how your doctor would likely treat each possibility:
- Pain. Some pain and swelling are likely to occur with all extractions. In most cases, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories paired with a limited dose of narcotic medications can help control most pain. Ice is recommended for the first 24 hours to minimize swelling.
- Dry socket. Though rare, this is one of the most common true complications following surgery. It typically occurs four to seven days after a tooth is extracted when the blood clot needed for healing dissolves too soon. Your dentist likely will treat it with an oral antiseptic solution or a specialized dressing depending on the severity of pain.
- Subperiosteal abscess. This is a pus pocket that develops when bone and tissue debris are trapped between the healing extraction socket and the tissue covering the bone. Your dentist can drain the abscess and provide you with antibiotics to help clear up any infection.
- Bacterial infections. Postoperative bacterial infections are rare, occurring in fewer than 6 percent of all cases. Your dentist may give you a dose of antibiotics before surgery to sidestep problems with infection. After surgery, antiseptic mouth rinses or additional antibiotic regimens are sometimes needed.
Q: Is there any way to avoid problems with your wisdom teeth?
A: Ultimately, you have little control over your wisdom teeth. “Other than keeping up with oral hygiene and going to the dentist on a regular basis, there are not much patients can or need to do,”
The five most common causes of vertigo are:
- Meniere’s disease: Meniere’s disease is a condition that affects the inner ear. It is marked by a buildup of fluid in the inner ear as a result of a viral infection, allergies or an injury to the ear. Along with dizziness, it can also cause a ringing noise in the ears, the feeling of having plugged ears and hearing loss. Vertigo caused by Meniere’s disease can last for months.
- Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV): This is one of the most common triggers of vertigo. This condition is caused by small crystals that break free and float in the inner ear canals. These canals are known as semicircular canals. Vertigo caused by BPPV is usually short-lived and relieves itself is a few minutes. Moving the head in a certain way or jerky movements can trigger vertigo in such cases. The exact cause of this condition is not clear but it has been often associated with severe head trauma.
- Labyrinthitis: This condition is also known as vestibular neuritis. It is marked by swelling and irritation of the two vestibular nerves in the inner ear canal. Labyrinthitis may be caused by a viral infection or an inner ear infection. In such cases, vertigo may be accompanied by hearing loss. Older adults are at the highest risk of this condition.
- Vitamin B12 Deficiency: A simple vitamin deficiency can also cause vertigo and dizziness. Vitamin B12 helps prevent anaemia and keeps nerves and blood cells healthy. Low levels of this vitamin can cause neurological problems that in turn cause vertigo. This is because vitamin deficiencies reduce blood pressure and blood flow to the brain. A simple blood test can help check Vitamin B1 levels and identify a deficiency. Some of the best sources of vitamin B12 are dairy products, meats and fortified cereals.
- Dehydration: 60% of the human body mass is water. Water plays a number of roles in the human body. One of the most important functions of water is the circulation of nutrients in the body and blood flow. Thus, even mild dehydration can make a person feel dizzy and nauseous. This type of vertigo may be relieved by drinking copious amounts of fluids.
