Pros and cons of the removal of wisdom
Why do dentists often advise their patients to remove them? Before making an
appointment for a Houston Wisdom Teeth extraction, be sure you understand all the
pros and cons of wisdom teeth removal.
What are your wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth that emerge, usually between the ages of 17 and 25
years. Since a young adult is more cunning than a child, these molars on the extreme
left and right of their upper and lower jaws are known as "wisdom teeth."
Affected wisdom teeth
The reason why dentists so often recommend the Houston Wisdom Teeth
Extraction is that, more often than not, they do not come in a straight line. About 44
percent of the time the wisdom teeth are angled forward. Called mesioangular
impaction, this malformation points the tooth towards the front of the mouth.
About 38 percent of the time, the wisdom tooth never comes completely through the
gum line. This malformation is known as vertical impaction. In relatively rare cases,
approximately 6 percent of the time, the wisdom tooth is tilted back toward the back
of the mouth. This phenomenon is known as distoangular impaction. It is also possible
for a wisdom tooth to go sideways. This phenomenon, known as horizontal impaction,
occurs in about 3 percent of wisdom teeth that are growing at a 90 degree angle to
neighbouring teeth, growing their roots in the neighbouring molar.
A significant minority of people, however, have wisdom teeth that come in a straight

When the dentist cannot remove the tooth with forceps, it will be necessary to remove
a small amount of bone from the jaw. If the bone is not removed, the jaw bone can
fracture, tearing the floor of one of the breasts, providing a pathway for infection
along the face. A good dental technique is essential if you want to do Impacted
Wisdom Teeth Removal. But is it really necessary to extract these teeth?
The professionals of the wisdom teeth removal
There is no doubt that wisdom teeth pose potential problems when they do not erupt in
good alignment. They can crowd the adjacent teeth, or if they enter sideways, roots
grow on them. When the wisdom teeth incline toward the adjacent molars, they trap
the food particles, plaque and debris that can cause tooth decay.
It is very important to follow the instructions of the surgeons regarding smoking,
spitting, drinking through a straw, or playing a musical instrument. These activities
can cause the formation of a "dry tube" where blood clots do not form or fall
prematurely. Essentially a small hole where the wisdom tooth used to be, a dry
receptacle can trap food and bacteria and cause severe inflammation and bad breath.
