The short answer is no, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. Some people have their wisdom teeth pulled because the teeth are very impacted and not much room for them to grow. Others may need them removed because they are causing problems or pain in the mouth.

There are risks with having them extracted, such as jaw becoming misaligned, nerve damage, tooth decay, tooth loss, and dry socket. But there are also benefits to having them removed before orthodontics like better oral hygiene and less risk of gum disease.

When Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Extracted?

Wisdom teeth are the last of the adult teeth to come in. It’s most common for wisdom teeth to come in between the ages of 16 and 25. Your mouth may not have enough room for all four wisdom teeth, which can cause problems with your jaw joint, sinuses, or other existing molars.

The following is a list of situations that often lead people to have their wisdom teeth extracted.

* When there isn’t enough room in your mouth for all 4 wisdom teeth

* When there is too much pressure on one side of your jaw joint from an impacted tooth or tangle of roots from two or three impacted teeth

* When wisdom tooth pain keeps coming back after you’ve tried different treatments

* When you have recurrent swelling in your gums

Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Removal?

While some people choose to leave them alone, there are many reasons why it may be a good idea to have them removed.

Some of the benefits include a cleaner mouth, a better smile, and more room in your mouth.

One of the most common reasons for wisdom tooth removal is overcrowding in the mouth.

When they grow in there is not enough room for all four teeth to fit properly and they can cause problems with chewing food and speaking clearly.

Another reason is infection from bacteria or plaque build-up around the wisdom tooth which can lead to pain and swelling.
