When the extraction of a tooth is required:
An extracted tooth leaves an open area in the jaw, which, in time, allows the neighboring teeth to drift into the site of the removed tooth. Increasing space, in turn, causes a chain reaction to all the surrounding teeth. If you are considering placing an implant in the future, you should consider asking your dentist to place a bone graft at the time of surgery to preserve the bone width and height.
Wisdom teeth can lead to problems if there isn't enough space for them to surface or come through in the wrong position.
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to erupt into the mouth. Wisdom teeth typically appear around a person's mid-twenties but can erupt much later. If the wisdom teeth don't have enough space, symptoms can occur. The wisdom teeth may only partially erupt or might not come through at all.
Dentists designate wisdom teeth 'impacted' when obstructed from eruption into the mouth.
The tooth may lie at an angle and remain tipped against an adjacent tooth. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems like pain and swelling; The mouth could ache when stretched open wide, or it may be challenging to open your mouth. Tenderness when chewing and biting may occur. Earaches may develop from the spread of pain in the mouth. Symptoms may be intermittent but can begin anytime without warning. If you are experiencing symptoms, it is best to get treatment 'usually removal' as soon as possible to avoid potentially expensive and painful complications.
