Wisdom Teeth Extraction Improves Your Oral Health

Wisdom teeth are an unnecessary set of third molars that typically erupt between the ages of 17 and 21, with ages 13 to the late 20s considered normal. However, not everyone gets wisdom teeth or has all four of them erupt. Whether you have one wisdom tooth break through the gums or all four, it is critical to arrange for oral surgery in Katy TX as soon as possible.

What Are the Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

Not only is extraction of wisdom teeth uncomfortable, but not having them extracted in a timely fashion can cause numerous issues with your oral health. At Chloe Dental, we prefer to remove wisdom teeth before the root structure of each tooth fully develops. Extraction becomes much more challenging once the root structures are in place.

When wisdom teeth do not have enough room to come in properly, the gum tissue surrounding the non-erupted tooth can become inflamed and infected. Mouth pain, swelling, and chewing and swallowing difficulties are the typical outcomes of leaving the wisdom teeth alone for too long.

Another problem with non-timely removal of wisdom teeth is that they can cause crowding with the other teeth along with extensive damage that requires follow-up treatment. You could even develop cysts in your mouth, which are small fluid-filled sacs that grow on the jawbone. If left untreated, the cysts can destroy a significant amount of jawbone and weaken several non-wisdom teeth.
