What Makes Wisdom Teeth Extraction Necessary?

Why is Good Timing Necessary?

Some issues can arise if you don't have enough space for your wisdom teeth to erupt properly. It's best to have your wisdom teeth extracted before their root structures have fully integrated into the jawbone. Third molar extraction may occur as early as 12 or 13 years of age in some patients, while it may not occur until they are in their late teenage years in others. When patients are over 30 years old, it has been observed that impacted wisdom teeth cause severe problems. Here are some of the issues that can arise if you don't have your wisdom teeth extracted:

  • Possible Crowding
  • Root and Gum Infection
  • Cyst Formation
  • Damage to neighbor teeth

What if You Don’t Want Your Wisdom Teeth Extracted?

In your 30s, 40s, or 50s, you can still have your wisdom teeth removed. However, as you get older, the process of removing them becomes more difficult, healing is difficult, and the risk of complications increases. Wisdom teeth roots grow in size and the jawbone becomes denser as they grow, so it's best to have them removed when they're still developing in younger patients.
