Wisdom Tooth Extraction: Why It’s Done and What to Do Post Surgery

The removal of one or more wisdom teeth is a surgical process that is called a tooth extraction. However, before understanding the procedure, it is important to know about it. These are the four adult permanent teeth that sit at the back of your mouth. Wisdom teeth are present above and below. 

These wisdom teeth must have room to grow. If not, you will have to undergo a tooth extraction, which will be performed by an oral surgeon. To avoid problems in the future, most dentists recommend doing this procedure even if there are no problems.

Wisdom teeth appear between the ages of 17 and 25, but some people don't get them at all. The reason why their extraction is so important is for the following reasons:

• When it grows sideways to the back of your mouth

• When you grow sideways to the next tooth

• When they grow at right angles to other teeth

Affected wisdom teeth can cause pain, retention of food between the cracks, gum disease, tooth decay, damage to surrounding teeth, and complications from orthodontic treatment. This reason is more than sufficient to undergo wisdom tooth extraction.

Sometimes patients doubt this tooth extraction procedure. The patient believes that this procedure has many risks, but this is not true. This procedure does not cause long-term complications.
