When Should I Have My Child Evaluated For Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Posted on 6/5/2023 by Alyce
Wisdom tooth extraction is a standard prophylactic operation since impacted wisdom teeth are the most common medical and developmental issue. A panoramic X-ray of your child's mouth may reveal any potential problems with their wisdom teeth as they come in. A dentist will often recommend an oral surgeon for such work. If you are familiar with the signs and symptoms of a developing wisdom tooth, you can better assess when it may be time to have your child's wisdom teeth extracted.
Why You Should Consider Wisdom Tooth Extraction For Your Child
The final formation of wisdom teeth requires an extended period. However, with early detection comes the opportunity to observe the situation and decide whether or not the teeth need to be extracted. During a check-up when your child is close to 16 years old, the dentist may draw attention to the development of the third molars on an x-ray. The emergence of wisdom teeth is often accompanied by pain. Issues will likely arise if they are kept in the mouth for an extended period. Since most people's mouths are too small for their wisdom teeth to erupt normally, they usually become impacted. Without enough room to erupt, wisdom teeth exert force on neighboring teeth, forcing them to move.
Plaque and germs build up more quickly on these teeth because they are far behind the second molars. Cavities on the second and third molars develop when plaque builds up on the rear teeth. Too many bacteria may lead to soft tissue infections, cysts, other abnormalities surrounding the teeth, and deterioration in cavities.
