What Are “Wisdom Teeth”?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to emerge in the mouth, typically appearing in the late teenage years or early adulthood. These teeth are located at the back corners of the mouth on both the upper and lower jaws. For many individuals, wisdom teeth can become a source of discomfort and dental issues due to their positioning and the limited space in the jaw to accommodate them.

Why Should Wisdom Teeth Be Extracted?

The extraction of wisdom teeth is often recommended for several reasons. Firstly, many people’s jaws are not large enough to allow for the proper growth and alignment of wisdom teeth, leading to impaction (teeth that are trapped beneath the gum tissue by other teeth or bone), which can cause pain, infection, and damage to adjacent teeth. Secondly, wisdom teeth can emerge at odd angles or only partially break through the gum, creating hard-to-clean areas that are susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. Removing these teeth can prevent such complications, ensuring the health and alignment of the rest of the teeth are maintained.

The Wisdom Tooth Extraction Procedure

The wisdom tooth extraction procedure is a common practice in oral surgery designed to remove one or more wisdom teeth. The procedure can vary from a simple extraction, which involves removing a tooth that has fully emerged from the gum, to a more complex surgical extraction, which is required when a wisdom tooth is impacted.

Prior to the procedure, patients are typically given a local anesthetic to numb the area and may also receive sedation to ease any anxiety. Our Denver oral surgeon will then make an incision in the gum tissue to expose the tooth and bone, remove any bone that blocks access to the tooth root, and divide the tooth into sections if necessary before removing it. After the tooth is extracted, the site is cleaned, and if necessary, stitched up. The patient is then given care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery, which may include pain management, dietary restrictions, and oral hygiene practices to prevent infection.
