When Is Wisdom Teeth Removal Necessary?

In this video, Dr. Vahid Bashi explains how, in most patients, wisdom teeth removal prevents potential dental issues, such as crowding or severe pain.

The decision to remove wisdom teeth depends on various factors, and it’s a question that many people ask. Typically, the need for wisdom teeth removal is determined by their positioning and their potential to cause issues. To assess this, we use different types of X-rays to precisely locate the wisdom teeth and evaluate their impact.

Wisdom teeth can lead to problems if they are positioned in a way that may cause discomfort or pain. Additionally, as they come in, they often exert pressure on the adjacent teeth, leading to crowding, especially in cases where individuals have previously undergone orthodontic treatment like braces. If wisdom teeth are allowed to emerge and push against your other teeth, they can undo the progress achieved by orthodontic work. It’s important to note that even after wisdom teeth removal, the adjacent teeth do not naturally return to their proper positions.

In essence, the decision to remove wisdom teeth is not because there is something inherently wrong with them; rather, it’s primarily due to the limited space available in the mouth once all the other teeth have erupted. Wisdom teeth can be like any other teeth if there’s sufficient space for them to properly align and function. Therefore, it is crucial to determine whether wisdom teeth might cause issues and, if necessary, remove them proactively to prevent potential discomfort, pain, or dental complications.
