Most of the world’s population needs to have a wisdom tooth extraction at some point in their lives. Reason being, there just is not enough room in the jaw to accommodate emerging wisdom teeth, which can lead to a range of complications.
While most individuals require wisdom tooth extraction, there are still a lot of questions surrounding wisdom teeth and the extraction procedure, such as:
- What will happen if I don’t remove my wisdom teeth?
There is a small percentage of the population that do not need to have their wisdom teeth removed. As for the majority, wisdom teeth may come in sideways causing a range of issues including bite misalignment, tooth decay, infections, etc.
- How do I know that I need wisdom tooth extraction?
Your dentist, orthodontist, or other oral healthcare expert should keep you updated on the status of your wisdom teeth, and recommend extraction when the time is right.
- When is the best time to have my wisdom teeth extracted?
The best time to extract your wisdom teeth is before the root is fully developed. After the roots have fully developed the procedure becomes far more difficult and painful. That is why pre-teens and young adults (15-24 years) are often the common candidate for wisdom tooth extraction.
