Why Do You Get Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?

wisdom teeth extraction recovery time

The majority of people need one or more wisdom teeth removed during their lifetime. These third set of molars often need extracted for a variety of reasons, some of which may be immediately obvious. Other times, potential problems may not surface until much later. Some common issues surrounding eruption include:

  • Crowding – Frequently, there is not enough space in the mouth for an additional set of teeth. Even if there is enough room, improper alignment of the new set can damage other teeth, nerves or jawbone.
  • Impaction – Sometimes wisdom teeth begin to grow in, but do not fully surface. This creates a host of problems including pain, tooth decay or development of a cyst.
  • Infection – When the third molars only partially erupt or are too close to surrounding teeth, it may be difficult to brush them properly. Infection sets in when bacteria, debris or food become stuck. This can damage not only the molars, but nearby healthy teeth or bone as well.

How Long Is the Recovery Process?

After the painless removal in a calm environment, the recovery period is relatively short. You are provided with detailed recovery instructions to ensure your comfort and aid healing. If stitches are needed they typically dissolve in two to five days.
