People have different opinions on the idea of having wisdom teeth. Some prefer to have them extracted, while others find them essential. From a professional point of view, wisdom teeth form an important part of your dental structure. As much as there are cases when it is necessary to have them extracted, wisdom teeth contribute immensely to your oral well-being. When faced with a decision on the fate of your wisdom teeth, there are several factors you should look at. Here is how to tell if your wisdom teeth do not need extraction.

There Is No Pain

Wisdom teeth are mainly extracted when they become painful. There is no need to extract your wisdom teeth if you feel no pain or they are not causing problems. When you notice there is no sensitivity in your wisdom teeth when brushing or eating, it shows they are healthy and in good condition. When they do not come out on top of each other and are perfectly aligned in their position, you can choose not to have them extracted. When they grow properly without any issues, wisdom teeth can serve a great purpose to your dental structure. However, scheduling an appointment with us immediately after you start experiencing any symptoms in your wisdom teeth is essential. We will work to restore your oral health and stability.

Healthy Gums

In some cases, when wisdom teeth emerge, they might cause inflammation in the gums. This can be seen when the area is slightly swollen and reddish. Such conditions make it necessary to extract wisdom teeth. However, if your wisdom teeth do not lead to these conditions, they usually grow just fine. Therefore, you would not have to get them removed.

Note that wisdom teeth can contribute to the development of your dental structure. This is why it is essential to take good care of them by regular brushing and flossing. Having them checked regularly will also help. Visit our offices for more information on wisdom teeth and their relevance.
