Wisdom Teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are teeth known as third molars. They usually start to erupt in late adolescence or early adulthood, usually between the ages of 18 and 25. However, the eruption of these teeth can cause various problems, which are often solved by tooth extraction.

What are Wistom Teeth Problems?

  1. Impaction and Crowding: Because there is often not enough room in the mouth, wisdom teeth can get stuck or crowded with other teeth as they try to erupt. This can lead to pain, tooth decay and other dental health problems.
  2. Partially Impacted: When wisdom teeth only partially erupt, the part that remains under the gums can lead to infection and inflammation. This can cause pain, swelling and bad breath.
  3. Twisted Placement: In some cases, wisdom teeth can erupt at the wrong angle and push or press on other teeth, causing damage to the jawbone.

What are Wisdom Teeth Solutions?

  1. Tooth Extraction: Most wisdom teeth problems can be solved by the dentist through tooth extraction. Tooth extraction is usually performed under local anesthesia and usually results in a smooth healing process.

  2. Control and Observation: Sometimes wisdom teeth may not cause any problems. In this case, the dentist can monitor the condition of the tooth with regular check-ups and intervene when necessary.

  3. Orthodontic Intervention: Wisdom teeth can cause crowding by pushing or pressing on other teeth. In this case, orthodontic treatment may be required to align the teeth and correct the jaw structure.

  4. Antibiotic Treatment: Wisdom teeth that remain half impacted can be controlled with antibiotic treatment in case of infection. However, it may often be necessary to extract the tooth to permanently resolve the infection.

    In any case, it is important to be examined by a dentist to identify problems with the eruption of wisdom teeth and to determine the appropriate treatment.
