Signs You Need Your Wisdom Teeth Removed

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge in the late teenage years or early adulthood. While some people may not experience any problems, the emergence of wisdom teeth can cause significant discomfort and complications for others. 

Here are some key indicators that suggest it might be time to consider wisdom teeth removal.

Pain and Discomfort: One of the most common signs is pain or tenderness around the back of the mouth, which may indicate that the wisdom teeth are struggling to emerge properly.

Swelling and Inflammation: Swelling of the gums or the jaw area can occur when wisdom teeth begin to push through the gum line, potentially leading to infection or cysts.

Difficulty Eating: If you experience pain or discomfort while chewing or biting near the back of your mouth, it could be due to the pressure and crowding caused by emerging wisdom teeth.

Overcrowding: Wisdom teeth can cause overcrowding of existing teeth, leading to misalignment or shifting of teeth, which may require orthodontic treatment to correct.

Gum Disease and Cavities: The position of wisdom teeth can make them difficult to clean, increasing the risk of gum disease and cavities due to trapped food particles and bacteria.

Early detection and removal of problematic wisdom teeth can prevent further complications. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, consult Dr. Yanich for a comprehensive evaluation.

The Removal Procedure

During the procedure, Dr. Yanich makes a small incision in the gum tissue to expose the wisdom tooth and bone. He carefully removes any bone that blocks access to the tooth root and then divides the tooth into sections if it's easier to remove in pieces. Throughout the process, Dr. Yanich's precision and skill minimize tissue impact and promote a quicker recovery.

The Day of Your Procedure

When you arrive for your wisdom teeth removal procedure, Dr. Yanich will administer the previously selected anesthesia, a critical step to guarantee a completely pain-free experience throughout the surgery. This typically spans 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the complexity of your case.

Following the removal, you’ll be gently transitioned to a recovery area. During this crucial time, Dr. Yanich’s team remains vigilant, closely monitoring your condition for your safety and comfort. 

Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery after wisdom teeth removal is essential. Dr. Yanich provides a comprehensive care plan for your recovery. 

Pain Management: You will be prescribed or advised on pain management medications to help manage any discomfort post-surgery.

Swelling and Bruising: Applying ice packs as directed can help reduce swelling and bruising around the jaw.

Diet: Stick to soft foods and liquids for the first few days. Avoid using a straw, as the suction can disrupt the healing process.

Oral Hygiene: Gentle rinsing with salt water can help keep the area clean. Avoid brushing directly on the extraction sites for a few days.

Activity: Rest is crucial. Avoid strenuous activities for at least a week to prevent complications.

Delaying the removal of wisdom teeth can lead to several complications, including pain, infection, cysts, and damage to adjacent teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth, which do not have enough room to emerge or grow properly, can particularly cause problems. 

Over time, impacted teeth can lead to crowding and even more serious issues like damage to the jawbone or nerves.

Generally, the cost can range from several hundred to several thousand dollars. 

Many dental insurance plans offer coverage for wisdom teeth removal, so it’s a good idea to check with your provider for specific details about your coverage. 

In cases where wisdom teeth are healthy, fully erupted, functional, and can be properly cleaned and maintained, some dental professionals may recommend leaving them in place. 

However, removal may be advised if wisdom teeth are impacted, cause pain, lead to dental crowding, or are associated with gum disease or decay.
