Is it Time to Have Your Wisdom Teeth Surgery?
“OUCH, my gums hurt way back here and it’s all red and swollen…” That is usually the cry of anyone from a preteen to young adult. The pain and swelling in the jaw are due to the development of third molars, commonly called wisdom teeth. These teeth are usually the last teeth to develop very far back in the mouth during years of “maturity,” hence the nickname wisdom teeth. Most dental professionals agree that the best time to have these teeth removed is during teenage years to avoid future dental problems. Some dental concerns can range from teeth crowding, bleeding, to decay or developing cysts and tumors in that area. It is very hard to reach those wisdom teeth when brushing and flossing, preventing adequate hygiene care.

An X-ray should be taken to observe the positioning of your wisdom teeth. This dental CAT scan is used to evaluate the presence and alignment of your wisdom teeth. Not all wisdom teeth are alike, some may come in straight, some that “push” on the adjacent tooth or some even sideways. Due to the complexity of positioning and formation of wisdom teeth, most general dentists will refer you to an oral surgeon to have them removed.
