Catonsville Dental Care doesn’t offer wisdom teeth removal as one of our services. However, we can refer you to a specialist. Wisdom teeth removal is a significant topic of discussion because everyone has them. In addition, most people have questioned if a wisdom tooth extraction is worth addressing. Your dental health improves when you take care of the necessary extractions that might be causing you discomfort. Here are four benefits of removing your wisdom teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Ensures There is Less Crowding
When your wisdom teeth develop and erupt, this can cause damage to surrounding teeth. When there isn’t enough space for them to grow, it causes alignment issues making other teeth accomodate for the lack of space and become pushed out of the way. If you’d prefer not to have restorative surgery to fix these issues, wisdom teeth extraction will benefit you significantly.
It Keeps Your Neighboring Teeth Healthy
The pressure of wisdom teeth can loosen the roots of neighboring teeth. In addition, this impact can also grind away at the enamel of surrounding teeth. As a result, it makes you more susceptible to cavities or even bone loss. Plus, it can be nearly impossible to keep an erupted wisdom tooth clean. If you’d prefer a root canal and fillings not to be a requirement, you might want to put this task on your to-do list.
Oral Disease and Inflammation Prevention
Impacted wisdom teeth increase the risk of, once again, cavities. However, they also make you more susceptible to developing various forms of gum disease. Impacted teeth of any kind can cause gum inflammation. Also, when an infection spreads under your gums, it can affect your nerves or, even worse, enter the bloodstream turning into a condition called sepsis. Sepsis can be life-threatening, and it affects the entire body. As we always mention, not addressing dental health issues can lead to a domino effect of other overall health issues.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Minimizes a Lot Of Pain
In this case, “no pain, no gain” doesn’t apply. It doesn’t benefit any person to feel a wisdom tooth throbbing immensely. When this is the case, you can no longer enjoy your favorite foods. Sure, you can’t eat hard foods for 1-3 weeks after wisdom tooth extractions. However, this temporary inconvenience will ensure that you’re not feeling a lifetime of pain, particularly chronic headaches.
