Everyone has different sets of teeth and molars in their mouth. The molars, in particular, are thicker teeth that chew and grind food better than any of your other teeth. There are three sets of molars in every mouth, but the wisdom teeth are the least important. You may want to consider getting your wisdom teeth removed in Porter Ranch before they cause you problems.
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars way in the back of the top and bottom arches of your mouth. They are also the last set of adult teeth to grow in your mouth, usually between ages 17 and 25.
Wisdom teeth are not required to chew correctly and healthily. The wisdom teeth function is relatively meaningless for chewing purposes because you can still chew with the other molars closer to the front of your mouth.
So why should you remove them? Unfortunately, wisdom teeth can increase your chances of developing oral health problems if they don’t get removed sooner rather than later in your life.
Keeping your wisdom teeth can increase your chances of developing teeth cavities, gum inflammation, and oral disease because they trap plaque and bacteria more than any other teeth. Once you develop these oral health problems, they are extremely challenging to treat.
Removing wisdom teeth can prevent you from developing severe oral disease and painful cavities in your mouth.
2)Prevent Harm to Nearby Teeth
Wisdom teeth often grow misaligned, causing them to grind up against neighboring teeth. The grinding could strip the enamel from these teeth and leave them more susceptible to bone loss and cavities.
Wisdom teeth removal is the only way to stop the grinding from happening. Then you can preserve the safety of your neighboring teeth.
3)Reduce or Prevent Headaches
Did you know wisdom teeth can cause headaches? Since they put uneven tension and pressure on the jawbone, the stress from chewing foods could spread to your neck and eventually to your head.
Removing your wisdom teeth will relieve this pressure from your jawbone and alleviate your headache problem.
4) Difficult to Treat
Since wisdom teeth are way in the back of the mouth, they are the most difficult to treat when infected. And it certainly doesn’t help that plaque and bacteria build up faster on wisdom teeth than on any other teeth in the mouth. Therefore, you are much better off removing your wisdom teeth before they get infected.
5) Prevents Jawbone Damage and Infections
Tumors, cysts, and infections can develop in the jawbone if wisdom teeth don’t get removed. What’s worse is the infection and bacteria could spread to other areas of your mouth and possibly even to organs within your body. Then you’ll have much bigger problems beyond the wisdom teeth.
It is best to remove your wisdom teeth to preserve and protect your overall health. The risk of keeping your wisdom teeth is too severe to ignore.
