It is not uncommon for the last molars to break through the gum line to become problematic. In fact, these third molars, often referred to as the wisdom teeth, are known for becoming impacted or painful. The team of Rush Creek Dentistry in Arlington, TX works with patients to help them better understand the process of wisdom tooth eruption, and in some cases, will educate them on the advantages of having these teeth extracted—sometimes well before they become a problem.
The wisdom teeth are teeth that develop in the very far back of the mouth. These third molars are not considered "necessary" and can be removed without further problems. They have an issue with becoming impacted, meaning they never push through the gum line and become a painful problem. When this occurs, our dental team may recommend extraction with our in-house periodontist.
Once the wisdom teeth are extracted, patients no longer have to worry about pain or discomfort they may have experienced before the surgery. Patients who have had their wisdom teeth but found them to be difficult to maintain because they are further back in the mouth are excited to reduce worry of periodontal disease and decay which is a common problem with these molars.
