Benefits of Wisdom Teeth Removal

Having your wisdom teeth taken out is a preventative measure with several important benefits:

1. Protect your smile
As the wisdom teeth erupt from the gums, they can damage or push neighboring teeth out of the way. Surgery eliminates this risk.

2. Prevent pain and discomfort
Your wisdom teeth may be “impacted” (incapable of emerging from the gums). Over time, their development beneath the surface can cause soreness, swelling, and inflammation.

3. Safeguard your teeth
In some cases, an impacted wisdom tooth can develop a tumor or cyst around the lining. This can permanently damage nearby healthy teeth and surrounding bone.

Salt Lake County and Utah County patients who have their wisdom teeth extracted in their teens can avoid these complications later in life.

Consequences of Not Addressing Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Ignoring the warning signs of impacted wisdom teeth can not only be painful, but it can lead to other complications, including the risk of infection. Plus, it is easier to remove these extra molars before they become strongly rooted in the jawbone. The longer you wait, the more issues can arise. These are just a few of the dangers of not removing impacted wisdom teeth:

  • Decaying of partially erupted teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Damage to surrounding teeth due to crowding or infection
  • Cysts can form when the sac around the wisdom tooth fills with fluid; this can cause damage to the jawbone, teeth, and nerves
  • Ongoing pain
  • Difficulty eating
  • Sinus problems from pressure caused by impacted wisdom teeth in the upper jaw
