Frequently Asked Questions

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the final set of molars that typically emerge at the back of the mouth during the late teens or early twenties. These teeth were once essential for our ancestors who consumed coarser diets, but today, they often pose challenges.

Why wisdom teeth cause concern:

* Late Arrival: Due to their late eruption, wisdom teeth can face limited space in the jaw, leading to impaction (when they can't fully emerge) or improper alignment.

* Potential Problems: Impacted or misaligned wisdom teeth may cause pain, infection, damage to adjacent teeth, cysts, or gum issues, necessitating their removal.

🦷 Importance of professional assessment:

* Consultation Matters: An oral surgeon's evaluation is crucial to determine the positioning and condition of your wisdom teeth through X-rays and clinical assessments.

* Individualized Care: Every patient's situation is unique, and not all wisdom teeth need removal. Our team at The Warm Smile offers personalized assessments to guide treatment decisions.

What are the common problems caused by wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth often make their debut during our late teens or early twenties and can bring along a host of dental issues.

1. Infection and Gum Disease:
Partially erupted wisdom teeth can create pockets around the gums that are tricky to clean effectively. These pockets become breeding grounds for bacteria, leading to inflammation, infection, and gum disease.

2. Decay on adjacent tooth:
Partially erupted wisdom teeth that are angulated produce food packaging between the wisdom tooth and the molar before, the tooth adjacent to the wisdom tooth is the one that gets a decay in an area that is too close to the dental nerve and too difficult to restore, ending most of the times in loose of an extra tooth, the wisdom tooth and the adjacent one.

3. Impaction:
One of the most common problems associated with wisdom teeth is impaction. When wisdom teeth don't have enough space to emerge properly, they can become impacted, trapped beneath the gumline. This can lead to pain, swelling, and even infection.

4. Crowding:
Another issue that wisdom teeth can bring is crowding. As these molars try to find their place, they may push against your existing teeth, leading to misalignment and overcrowding.

5. Cysts and Tumours:
In rare cases, wisdom teeth can develop cysts or tumours. These growths can cause damage to neighbouring teeth and the surrounding bone, necessitating more complex surgical procedures for removal.
