Whether it is necessary to extract wisdom teeth before orthodontics is a matter of great concern among young people. In fact, not everyone has enough space in the jaw to grow 32 full & straight teeth. So what if you are preparing for orthodontics but have more wisdom teeth, what to do? Let’s find the answer right here.
Wisdom teeth are the last permanent teeth to erupt when you are between the ages of 17 and 25. Most wisdom teeth will rarely grow straight at this stage; Because the jawbone doesn’t have enough space. Therefore, they often tend to grow sideways, or grow underground. And the consequences will affect the neighboring teeth. Or affect the results of previous braces.
Features of wisdom teeth that you need to know
Wisdom teeth are a remnant feature of people in the past when they had large jaws.
Wisdom teeth often tend to grow misaligned, or partially sprouted. And then, they will push on the neighboring teeth, and adversely affect these teeth. It can cause the teeth to be crowded, push the teeth, or affect the results of previous braces.
Therefore, many people think that it is best to extract wisdom teeth before orthodontics treatment.
However, not everyone with wisdom teeth has the same situation.
There are still many people whose wisdom teeth grow straight and beautiful; And they do not affect the bite or the previous orthodontic effect.
As such, nothing can stop them from keeping their healthy wisdom teeth before orthodontic treatment.
There are a number of reasons why you may need to remove your wisdom teeth other than pulling teeth when you need braces
Wisdom teeth extraction before braces can be a reason for great concern.
In addition, there are still many other reasons that may cause you to part with these wisdom teeth.
- Periodontal disease – commonly known as gum disease. This disease is caused by toxins secreted by the plaque around the wisdom teeth; Or wisdom teeth partially erupt and have covered gums that cause inflammation (because it’s difficult to clean this place). If left untreated, the condition gets worse; Can lead to tooth loss and other health problems in your body (caused by bacteria being released into the bloodstream).
- Tooth decay – can happen when plaque builds up around wisdom teeth.
- Abscess – can develop around wisdom teeth. Because wisdom teeth are difficult to clean and tend to stick to plaque. From there, bacteria on the teeth grow and can lead to purulent inflammation.
So what should we do? Should wisdom teeth be kept when they are healthy? Or do you need to extract wisdom teeth before orthodontics?
Many people decide to have their wisdom teeth removed early before any signs of trouble appear.
But there are also people who do not care even though wisdom teeth have begun to damage neighboring teeth. Maybe they are afraid of the pain of tooth extraction so they hesitate
, or they simply don’t care; And the consequences are always serious for these people.
If you are hesitating because you don’t know what to do, then stop thinking. Book an appointment with your dentist right away and get accurate advice from professionals.
