Wisdom teeth extraction: avoid complications!

Why have wisdom teeth removed?

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to form and appear in the mouth in a person’s buccal development. Surgery is sometimes required to remove them when growth impairs oral health. When wisdom teeth are in an awkward position for chewing or are misaligned, they can lead to a variety of complications, such as infections, cysts, cavities and significant bone loss from the neighbouring tooth. The ideal time for this surgery is during adolescence. During this period, the roots are not fully formed and the bone is more malleable, which makes treatment easier and recovery faster. Also, at this age, the bone will reform in the space left by the extraction much more quickly and predictably.

As for a tooth repair, wisdom teeth surgery is usually performed under local anaesthesia. The procedure can take varying amounts of time depending on the complexity.
