Understanding the Need for Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extraction

Wisdom teeth are the four third molars located on the top and bottom gum line at the very back of the mouth. Wisdom tooth extraction is one of the most debated topics among dental care experts. The decision to remove wisdom teeth is often complex—if you are not experiencing any symptoms to suggest the need for removal, you must carefully weigh your options and possibly seek several expert opinions before arriving at the right decision for you. And, of course, always keep in mind that many factors of your future health can impact the need to change your decision at any time.

For some people, the wisdom teeth erupt straight and fit comfortably in the mouth, while for others, this set of teeth never emerges, making tooth extraction unnecessary. The discomfort and debate over wisdom teeth is spurred by the fact that for so many individuals, the wisdom teeth don’t have room to grow, or emerge crooked, leading to multiple dental health issues.

Some dentists and oral surgeons recommend wisdom tooth extraction as a preventive measure against potential future problems. The procedure may be a simple outpatient procedure performed at your dentist’s office or, in the event of potential high-risk complications, you may have the surgery in the hospital with an oral surgeon. Consulting with your dental care provider and even seeking a second opinion as necessary, is a key strategy of preparing for wisdom tooth extraction. Seeking the advice of a trusted and affordable dentist in Tampa can make all the difference in your long-term dental care.

The American Dental Association recommends wisdom tooth extraction for the following reasons:

  • Pain or discomfort
  • Infection
  • Tumor or cyst development
  • Damage to nearby teeth
  • Development of gum disease
  • Tooth decay

If your wisdom teeth are not causing you present discomfort, you should know why preventive measures by a dentist in Tampa might be necessary. The most common reasons for preventive treatment include:

  • Safety: many dental care experts believe it is difficult to predict future problems with impacted wisdom teeth and it is safer to simply remove them before they can cause issue
  • Potential for disease: wisdom teeth commonly harbor disease even in the absence of symptoms
  • Removing the teeth as a young person reduces future risks, as older adults may experience additional health complication before, during, or after the surgery

You may find a dentist in Tampa who does not advise extraction of wisdom teeth that are not causing problems. These dental care experts believe that the evidence of asymptomatic wisdom teeth leading to disease and other complications later in life is insufficient and therefore does not justify the expense and risks of the procedure. To make an informed decision, it is important that you seek professional advice from a competent, affordable dentist to fully understand the risks and benefits of the tooth extraction procedure, as they apply to you.
