Extracting wisdom teeth. The procedure of extracting wisdom teeth (third molars) is a popular one. Patients often wonder what is the best time to extract wisdom teeth. In order to avoid chronic inflammations, complications and other significant issues later in life, dentists recommend prevention by early extraction of wisdom teeth. The surgical extraction procedure might be carried out quicker if the tooth has not yet decayed. Usually, the perfect moment is when the patient is around 20 years old, however aby other situation indicating the necessity to extract wisdom teeth is just as good reason – advanced caries, pulpitis.

The reasons to extract third molars include:
The reasons to extract third molars include:
  • Gingivitis in gums around the retained wisdom tooth, causing persistent and painful swelling of the mucous membrane of the cheek and of the gum, making it difficult to eat,
  • Caries in second molars,
  • Osteitis around the retained wisdom tooth,
  • Formation of cyst and bone degeneration,
  • Abnormal eruption of second molars,
  • Exerting pressure on neighboring teeth (second molars) resulting malocclusions,
  • Susceptibility to fracturing jaw bone in the region of the mandible angle,
  • The position of teeth does not allow for their proper cleaning/brushing, which increases susceptibility to caries, pulpitis and other serious issues in the teeth in question and in the neighboring teeth,
  • Abnormal situation and abnormal/wrong direction in which wisdom teeth grow, which may result in crowding of the remaining teeth,
  • Chronic pain in the back of the mouth in case the tooth fails to erupt through the gum or erupts in the gum only partially,
  • Extracting third molars may prove necessary in case of pulpitis, if the root canal is impossible to carry out,
  • Advanced caries excluding root canal and subsequent prosthetic reconstruction of the (crown of) the wisdom tooth,
  • Preparation for treatment including teeth implants.

 The so-called wisdom teeth may be the cause of many painful issues in adult life. Therefore, their preventive extraction is recommended – the sooner the better. Wisdom teeth are inherited from our ancestors and today completely useless, which is why their extraction is not associated with any risk or reducing comfort of chewing food.

Sometimes there are contraindications to extract wisdom teeth. Before deciding on the extraction it is advisable to consult a dental surgeon who can examine the situation and give advice on avilable options. If there are no contraindications, the patient may undergo an entirely painless procedure.

It is also worth noticing that extracting wisdom teeth may also resolve skin issues, which is associated with the position of these teeth. Inflammation very often causes skin changes on the face, which is another good reason to extract the residual organ.
