This typically happens in adolescence or during the teen years, but the procedure may still be performed during early or later adulthood. When you have your wisdom teeth removed will depend on your specific situation. Usually, your wisdom teeth will be removed before they begin to pose a problem. Many people have wisdom teeth are impacted, meaning that the teeth are coming in sideways. If these teeth are facing the rest of your permanent teeth, they can cause damage. If this is the case, then wisdom teeth will be removed as soon as possible – typically when all of your permanent teeth have come in and settled. Some adults have their wisdom teeth removed later on.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction Suffern

Wisdom Teeth Extraction Suffern 

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt in your mouth, usually between the ages of 17 and 25. If they are not removed, impacted wisdom teeth can cause infection, damage, disease or crowding of teeth. Our Suffern oral surgeons utilizes the latest advances in oral surgery and state-of-the-art technology during your surgical procedures that promote rapid healing and minimal post-operative discomfort.

Wisdom teeth, if present, may not erupt into the mouth.  When they do not erupt they are considered impacted.  Wisdom teeth which are not impacted typically erupt between 17-21 years old. Often the process of tooth eruption is painful and has associated complications, therefore, we recommend a consultation at 15-17 years old prior to eruption.  A consultation at this age is important as most will not have adequate space in their jaw for eruption of their wisdom teeth.

Are wisdom teeth required for normal chewing function?  No, in fact if a person does have adequate space for the eruption of wisdom teeth these teeth only provide very limited chewing function.  Furthermore, wisdom teeth often have short roots and can not adequately support bridges or partials. Wisdom teeth are considered vestigial organs, considered to be an imperfectly formed organ that has little to no utility.

Though most people do not experience pain with their wisdom teeth, that does not mean complications won’t arise. Most problems with wisdom teeth progress slowly and by the time a problem does become evident, damage may have already occurred. Remember, each person is different, therefore your individual situation can only be determined through a thorough oral examination and evaluation with your trusted oral surgeons at Ramapo Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgery in Suffern, New York.

Surgical Tooth Extractions Suffern

The relative ease at which your local Suffern oral surgeon can extract your wisdom teeth depends on the position of the impacted teeth. A pre-extraction examination at our dental offices on Route 59 will give us a better idea of what you should expect during extraction. A wisdom tooth that is fully erupted through the gum can be extracted as easily as any other tooth. However, a wisdom tooth that is underneath the gums and embedded in the jawbone, requires an incision into the gums and then removal of the portion of bone that lies over the tooth. Oftentimes during surgical tooth extractions, the tooth will be extracted in small sections rather than removed in one piece to minimize the amount of bone that needs to be removed to get the tooth out.

If you are experiencing any gum pain or crowding in your mouth, we invite you to visit our Suffern oral surgeon office for a consultation to see if wisdom teeth extraction is your next step.
