Top 5 Reasons Why You Might Need Your Wisdom Teeth Out

Hi, Dr Miranda Sageman at Bespoke Dental. I just finished a consultation with one of our long term patients, Amelia and her daughter Bella. During this consultation, Amelia asked me whether her daughter needs to have her wisdom teeth removed. This is quite a common question we get asked by parents, so I thought I’ll make a short video sharing with you the five main reasons why you may need to have your wisdom teeth removed.

Wisdom teeth are located at the back of the mouth, and are our third and last molar teeth. They usually erupt somewhere between 18 and 25 years of age.

Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed. You may only need to have these teeth removed if they;

Cause you pain from infection or trauma from cheek-biting.
There is no room for them to erupt completely into your mouth or they are impacted against the other teeth.
The roots of these third molars can be very close to the main lower jaw nerve and could cause complications if they’re allowed to grow to full development.
They become decayed or increase the risk of decay in the molars in front of them.
They can become cystic if they are left in the jaw for far too long.

Here at Bespoke Dental, we have a specialised digital OPG machine that can image the position of your wisdom teeth no matter what your age. So if you want to get a clear idea on the status and condition of your wisdom teeth, we would love to look after you. Simply call us on 02 6249 1391, complete the form on our website, or direct message us on social media, and our friendly team will be in touch to organise an appointment. We look forward to meeting you.
