Wisdom teeth – why all the fuss?

Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that grow in the back one’s mouth, with the evolutionary purpose of breaking down tougher foods. They can be a valuable asset if they grow vertically and are aligned properly.

However, in many cases, these teeth begin to grow diagonally and horizontally, causing a myriad of problems inside the mouth, including crowding and damage to adjacent molars and the jawbone. Additionally, wisdom teeth may not fully erupt through the gum and are thus termed as “impacted”.

That’s no fun – what should we do about it?

Is my wisdom tooth a problem?

A tooth is said to become impacted when there is a lack of space in the dental arch and when its growth becomes affected by the gums, bone or even another tooth.

There are different kinds of impaction;

  • Mesioangular impaction occurs when the tooth begins to grow forward towards the front of the mouth.
  • Vertical impaction is when the formed wisdom tooth does not fully erupt through the gum.
  • Horizontal impaction, less common than the other two forms, occurs when the tooth is angled sideways, growing into the roots of the second molar.


Wisdom teeth removal in Calgary NW – what can you expect?

Impacted wisdom teeth are usually removed due to the problems they are causing or because of the further risk of issues that may arise if they remain in the mouth. In many cases, damage caused by wisdom teeth may not visible on the surface so it’s important to consider them early.

We will usually take full X-rays of the mouth to see what is going on underneath the gum and to determine what type of extraction may be required if any. Many people get anxious at the thought or mention of wisdom teeth removal – that totally makes sense!

Our team works to make the procedure as smooth as possible and the recovery as quick as can be. Your dentist can prepare you by providing specific instructions for both before and after the procedure to aid in easing fear and give you the necessary tools to speed up the getting-well process!

Nosehill Dental ensures that each individual has access to dental solutions tailored to their specific needs, without exceptions. All our patients are treated equally and are encouraged to ask questions, seek clarification, and take an active role in their own dental care plan, in order to achieve oral health for life.
