Wisdom tooth may need to be removed by the dentists due to lack of space, unfavorable position, pathology and orthodontic reasons. If wisdom teeth aren’t painful and are in a reasonable position, then there is no need for wisdom tooth extraction by the dentists.
Wisdom teeth’s can erupt in a variety of position. Depending on these positions, the difficulty can arise during the removal of wisdom teeth. Some wisdom tooth may erupt right behind the second molar causing tooth decay, toothache, gum disease and bone loss. In some cases wisdom teeth may cause the adjacent teeth to collapse and wisdom teeth removal has to be done by the dentists to relive you of the tooth
Wisdom teeth could also be impacted as the soft tissues covers the wisdom teeth or there is lack of space around the wisdom tooth, this could result in food getting impacted, therefore leading to periocornitis and removal of the wisdom tooth is required or sometimes the dentist needs to cut the gums around the wisdom tooth to keep the area clean.
Wisdom tooth can erupt, but some of the wisdom tooth is still under the bone, then this area will be difficult to keep it clean and infection can occur in the surrounding area causing tooth pain, therefore the wisdom tooth has to be extracted by the dentist.
if the wisdom tooth is fully in the bone and not erupted, and if there is no pain, then the wisdom tooth can be left as it is and regular x-rays needs to be taken, to make sure that no pathology is occurring. If the person decides, then the wisdom tooth can be removed under general anaesthetic by the dentists.
