Question about wisdom teeth.

Posted on Thursday, Sep. 10th 2009 9:51 AM by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help, Extractions, Oral Surgery 2 Comments »

I am going on 19 I have not been to the dentist in about a year but I have questions about wisdom teeth.  My friend and people I know have already gotten their wisdom teeth out.  They say that  they had pain because of their wisdom teeth and so that was why they needed to be removed.   I have no pain and do not see any wisdoms teeth coming in but people tell me I still could have them impacted and should have them removed.

Is it posible to have your wisdom teeth removed if you do not feel pain?  I am not even sure I have them yet, but now I am worried about them some how messing up my other teeth.  Please any advise or information about wisdom teeth would be helpful.

    Here is some Questions and Answers about wisdoms teeth I hope it help you

    What are wisdom teeth?

    Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to come in the back of the jaw bone, know most commonly as the third molars.

    When do wisdom teeth come in?

    Most people get their wisdom teeth between the ages of 15 – 25 years old.

    How do I know if I have wisdom teeth?

    If you cannot see them toward the rear of your mouth, wisdom teeth can be detected by an x-ray given by your dentist.

    What are the problems associated with wisdom teeth?

    Sometimes wisdom teeth can cause crowding of the teeth, infections, cysts, tumors, jaw and gum disease.

    What is an impacted wisdom tooth?

    An impacted wisdom tooth is one that is entrapped completely or partially by soft tissue which can also be a cause of bacterial infections.

    Are wisdom teeth painful?

    Sometimes wisdom teeth can be painful when they are erupting through the soft tissue and can become swollen and or infected.

    Should I have my wisdom teeth removed?

    It depends on a lot of variables such as whether they are impacted and causing pain, they are growing in and moving your good teeth. It is best to contact a dentist. Keep in mind some people never have their wisdom teeth removed.

    How much does it cost to have a wisdom tooth extracted?

    Simple extractions can cost under $100, but it depends on the position of the tooth. For example, an impacted wisdom tooth could cost you over $250 or more to have removed.

    Does dental insurance cover wisdom teeth extraction?

    Some dental insurance plans and dental discount plans cover a portion of the cost for wisdom teeth extraction. Please refer to our web site and enter your zip code. Then review the different benefit schedules for your area. Nearly all of the dental insurance plans we sell offer coverage for this dental procedure.

    No you may not have to remove your wisdom teeth. There are people that never get their wisdom teeth. For other people they have enough room in their mouth for their wisdom teeth to come in normally.

    Some people may have pain from their wisdom teeth when the wisdom teeth partially erupts and bacteria and food partials get between the tooth and gum or underneath the gums. Since this area can be hard to clean by brushing and flossing you can start to get a infection.

    Since you stated you are not in pain and you are not sure if you have your wisdoms teeth or if there will be any issues with them. I would suggest that you may want to talk to your dentist.

    You said it as been about a year so when you go in for your check up they may do X-rays. Address this issue with your dentist he/she can advise you on whether on not you need to have anything done.
