Wisdom tooth extractions are so common they almost seem to be a rite of passage for young adults. While it is only necessary to pull a wisdom tooth under specific situations, the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons states that over 50% of individuals will have at least one wisdom tooth extracted from the ages of 16 to 24.
Here are some of the complications that can result from a wisdom tooth erupting improperly:
The best way to avoid complications with an erupting wisdom tooth is to consult with your dentist. Call Polaris Dental for a consultation today!
The best way to determine if you are experiencing complications from an erupting wisdom tooth is through a professional consultation. But, there are a few things you can watch out for if you are concerned. If you notice any of these symptoms you should meet with your dentist as soon as possible:
It’s worth noting that you can have wisdom tooth complications without any obvious symptoms. This is why it’s important to attend regular checkups with your dentist.
While it may sound intimidating to have a wisdom tooth extracted, you will be given an intravenous sedative during the procedure. Local anesthesia will also be used to numb the surgical site. These not only help block any pain, but you will be barely conscious for the duration of the procedure.
There are actually two different kinds of wisdom tooth extractions: simple and surgical. With a simple extraction, the wisdom tooth is extracted like every other type of tooth extraction. But, if there is a complication, such as a full bony, soft tissue, or partial bony impaction, additional surgical steps may be required.
After the surgery, you will be slightly intoxicated from the sedatives. Therefore, you should have someone drive you home after the procedure.
