Problems of wisdom teeth

  • Wisdom teeth easily decayed since tooth brush
    hardly reach them.

    Also neighboring teeth decayed by foods stuck between
    wisdom teeth and neighboring teeth (a cause of bad breath)

  • The gum and the cheek get swollen when the gum surrounding wisdom teeth got inflammation.

    If it got worse, the inflammation can develop to a cyst, tumor, myelitis.

  • Alveolar bones for molars next to wisdom teeth are
    absorbed together as bones nearby wisdom teeth
    are absorbed because of inflammation.

  • Neighboring molar teeth get slanted as they are pushed by wisdom teeth.

    This make teeth line uneven and therefore causes malocclusion.

  • Jaw bone gets pressure, which causes consistent
    pains without dental caries or jaw bone fracture is
    caused by the pressure in severe cases.

  • Except for very rare cases where jaw bones are well developed and wisdom teeth are erupted normally and therefore neighboring teeth are not affected, extraction is the best.

  • Following conditions are general after wisdom teeth removal.
  • Extraction area is bleeding.

FAQ

Some clinics send their patients to university hospitals, but people say that patients have to wait for months after making reservations…

Patients don’t wait for a month at New Face Dental Hospital nor are sent to other hospitals from New Face Dental Hospital for teeth extraction. However some patients have to wait for several days to get their severe swelling or inflammation on the extraction area relieved using drugs.

Isn’t wisdom teeth removal painful?

New Face Dental Hospital minimize the pains through water drop laser and conscious sedation.

Isn’t wisdom teeth removal expensive?

Extracting one wisdom tooth costs 10~30 thousand won with health insurance coverage.

I’m over 25 and my wisdom tooth doesn’t come out of the gum, but I don’t feel pains. Do I need to extract it?

Many wisdom teeth stay inside of the gum depending on the jaw bone development status and the direction the tooth is heading. These impacted wisdom teeth can cause pains, malocclusion, and jaw bone fracture as these teeth are pressing the neighboring teeth and jaw bones. So many impacted wisdom teeth are in need of extraction.

What is the timing for wisdom teeth removal?

There is no specified timing of wisdom teeth removal. Many people visit the dental clinic when they come to know the wisdom teeth as the teeth are coming out of the gum. Most wisdom teeth come out of the gum at the age of 17-25 years. People who are at those ages are recommended to visit dental clinics for counseling about wisdom teeth extraction.

Are all the wisdom teeth in need of extraction?

Extraction is recommended unless the jaw developed enough to let wisdom tooth come out of the gum without influencing neighboring teeth and jaw bone. Wisdom teeth can waste more money and time if you neglect the wisdom teeth just because they look OK.
