ratings and reviews)
Basically Wisdom Teeth are defined as the final and third set of molars that one gets in their late teens or early twenties. These are basically misaligned teeth that really don’t add to any function but can emerge at the most unlikely of places in the mouth like above the tongue or even at extreme corners of your molars. Wisdom teeth may also lead to extreme tooth pain and fever.
HOW IS WISDOM TEETH DIAGNOSED?
The dental team will usually take x-rays to see the position of the root, and to decide whether there is room for the tooth to come through into a useful position.
HOW IS WISDOM TEETH TREATED?
If the wisdom teeth are erupted, the tooth (or teeth) will be removed. If the wisdom teeth are impacted and embedded in the bone, the oral surgeon will put an incision into the gums and remove the tooth or teeth in sections in order to minimize the amount of bone being removed. If surgery is completed, swelling and tenderness in the face and neck are common, as is bruising. Ice packs and pain medications prescribed by the dentist or oral surgeon will help.
DID YOU KNOW?
Wisdom teeth that are not removed should continue to be monitored because the potential for developing problems later on still exists. As people age, they are at greater risk for health problems—and that includes potential problems with their wisdom teeth.
