A wisdom tooth is the last tooth to come in, usually around age 18. Wisdom teeth are so-called because they are often the teeth that people use to chew food when they are older. Wisdom teeth can be a pain to deal with, because they often come in crooked and can cause problems with other teeth. Some people choose to have their wisdom teeth removed, while others just keep an eye on them.
An impacted wisdom tooth is a tooth that is blocked from erupting (coming out of the gums) into the mouth. This can happen when there is not enough space in the jawbone for the tooth to erupt. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, infection, and other problems. They may need to be removed surgically.
There are typically two reasons to remove a wisdom tooth - either it is causing pain or it is impacted and cannot erupt properly. If a wisdom tooth is causing pain, the dentist will remove it. If a wisdom tooth is impacted, the dentist may remove it or may try to wait and see if it will erupt on its own. If the wisdom tooth does not erupt on its own, it will likely need to be removed.
If wisdom tooth pain is ignored, the pain will worsen and could potentially spread to other teeth in the mouth. Ignoring the pain could also lead to an infection, which could spread to other parts of the body. It is important to address wisdom tooth pain as soon as it is noticed in order to prevent any long-term damage or health complications.
The wisdom tooth extraction procedure begins by numbing the area around the tooth with an anesthetic. A small hole is then drilled in the tooth to allow for the removal of the root and surrounding bone. The tooth is then extracted using a specialized tool. The wound is closed with stitches or a bandage and the patient is given instructions for post-operative care.
The cost for wisdom tooth extraction can vary depending on various factors. However, it is typically a relatively affordable procedure. The first step in determining the cost is to schedule a consultation with the dentist to assess the situation and determine what type of extraction is necessary.
