You may have wondered why we have to have wisdom teeth removed in the first place. The main reason has to do with a lack of space for these teeth. By the time wisdom teeth grow in, most adults already have a full complement of teeth and there isn’t much room left in the dental arch to allow for 4 more large teeth to grow into a healthy position and alignment.
Wisdom teeth are actually called third molars. So why do people call them wisdom teeth? The third molars do not grow in until the dental arch becomes larger, which generally occurs around the age of 17-25, a time also referred to as the “age of wisdom.”
Wisdom teeth put pressure on the tooth and jaw barriers causing damage to these otherwise healthy structures. Their awkward position results in areas that you cannot reach with your toothbrush, floss, or Waterpik. These unreachable areas become havens for toxic bacteria to breed, which can turn into a chronic infections causing tooth decay and gum disease.
These chronic infections put you at higher risk for systemic diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, inflammatory diseases, and more. If there is not enough room in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to be completely healthy then they should be removed.
Atlanta Dental Spa has a dream team of experienced, talented, knowledgeable dentists who know how to evaluate wisdom teeth and whether or not they should be removed. Even if the wisdom tooth isn’t causing pain it should be evaluated, as by the time pain is present there may already exist severe and irreversible damage.
In the case of wisdom teeth, the infection can spread to adjacent teeth and gum tissue. Waiting to extract your wisdom teeth can cause cavities in other teeth along with periodontal disease. Atlanta Dental Spa recommends the removal of wisdom teeth before they cause damage to the rest of your mouth.
