Have you just received the new that your wisdom teeth need to be pull out? Is that normal? Rest assured, you are among the average of people. Wisdom teeth (third molars) are artefacts of evolution. Thousands of years ago, our ancestors needed a third molar at 18-20 years old in older to survive. Nowadays, as we keep all our teeth healthy, the third molars often lack the needed place to erupt normally.
IN MOST CASE, THE WISDOM TEETH NOT GROW FULLy, STILL INCLUDED IN THE JAW.
In these cases they should be extracted due to:
- Lack of space.
- Avoid infection: partially erupted allowing infiltration of bacteria
- Negative pressure: Poor alignment of wisdom teeth
- Risk of cyst formation
- GUM infection surrounding the wisdom teeth
The ideal time slot for the wisdom of surgery is between age 18 and 30 years. The recovery period is about 48 hours.
Consultation and panoramic radiographs are necessary to determine the procedures to consider and the evaluation of the risks of surgery. It is often possible to all extractions in a single appointment.
To remove all four wisdom teeth within a SINGLE APPOINTMENT of 60-90 minutes reduce the risks of complication and infection. It also have the enormous benefit of getting everything done within a single appointment and the healing process is simplified (compare to multiple appointments for extraction).
Reserve a consultation to know why and how your wisdom teeth should be extracted.
